By Vera Shawiza / April 18, 2017


A home is a place where individuals get to have a good time with family and friends. This is a place away from work and other life activities.

After a busy day out, one needs to get a very quiet place and relax. Who does not wish to have a good home? This is everyone’s dream. Most of the people dwelling around cities and other towns across Kenya wake up every morning to go out and work. One of the main reasons is so as to pay together with catering for other basic needs.

There are a number of mortgage offers in the market today, but none of them beats Cooperative Banks’s Good Home Mortgage. With this Mortgage, Cooperative Bank does the following:

  • Does upfront disclosure of all our processes and charges for your benefit.

Co-operative society members will enjoy a discounted rate depending on the choice of product.
