Ecobank Kenya might not have its origins in Kenya but they truly embody the Kenyan spirit. That Kenyan spirit that never gives up on the promise of our country when we are at our worse.
Ecobank ventured into Kenya in 2008 after the acrimonious elections that left the country deeply divided and the economy greatly shaken. At a time when investors were pulling out of Kenya, Ecobank still believed in our potential.
Undeterred by the political and economic environment, Ecobank bought out the former East Africa Building Society (EABS Bank) as its gateway to East Africa’s largest Economy.
Since setting up shop in Kenya, the bank has undergone immense transformation, almost tripling its branch network to 24 branches from only nine branches in 2008. The staff headcount has also risen to over 400 professionals serving in different capacities around the country. Ecobank branches are found in Nairobi, Nakuru, Eldoret, Kitale, Kisumu, Mombasa, and Malindi. Others are located in Busia, Kisii, Karatina, Nyeri, Thika, and Meru. This has greatly contributed not only in creating employment but also to the growth of the economy and facilitation of business.
Ecobank has over 65 Kenswitch, MasterCard, China Union Pay and Visa accredited Automated Teller Machines (ATMs) deployed in various parts of the Kenya making it easy for their customers to access funds. Add that to the fact that they offer internet and mobile banking services you get a bank that is concerned about the convenience of its customers.
Ecobank’s rapid growth is a clear manifestation of the goodwill that the pan African bank enjoys among Kenyans. Certainly there must be something that Ecobank is doing right. Fancy finding out what that is? Visit here or contact them.
