“We continue to execute our 2020 – 2024 strategy which positions the bank as a strong SME bank. Our strategy execution is on course, and we remain optimistic that the operating macro-economic environment will improve in the remaining part of the year.  We are happy that a significant number of customers, who were affected by COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, are slowly getting back on track as we continue to support their growth,” said Family Bank CEO Rebecca Mbithi.

Loan loss provisions rose to Sh360.1 million to support our customers against the adverse economic effects of the pandemic. The Group recorded a decline of 4.7 percent in net non-performing loans for the three months under review showing the resilience of our clients.
