Family Bank set aside a whopping 50 billion shillings just for women. No other bank has done that. The new product is called Queen Banking and is tailored towards empowering women in Kenya financially by giving them funds to invest and better their businesses.
“Family Bank is dedicated to empowering women in the world of finance. We understand the unique challenges faced by women, whether you are a business owner, a professional, or a group of women seeking financial growth, we are committed to providing the support needed to thrive,” says the lender on their website.
There is no doubt that Kenyan women dominate various economic sectors. According to the Economics Kenya Labour Force Report 2022, women form 49.7 percent of Kenya’s total labor force, make up 50.3 percent of Kenya’s total population, and 40 percent of micro and formal SMEs are owned by women.
