Family Bank has expanded its branch network to 91 with the opening of a new branch at Wangige market.
Family Bank Wangige branch seeks to serve traders operating in the famous Wangige market, one of the largest markets in East Africa, schools and universities, transport and infrastructure professionals, large and small-scale farmers and the business community in Wangige and around the area.
“We are glad to officially open our doors in Wangige today marking our 91st branch across 37 counties and the 13th branch in Kiambu County. We are also happy to note that Family Bank is among one of the two banks that the Government will work with for the SME Fund, a vote of confidence in the Bank’s efforts towards supporting micro, small and medium-sized businesses,” said Family Bank CEO Rebecca Mbithi.
The potential of Wangige and the larger Kiambu County cannot be underscored with the construction of the Nairobi Western Bypass Highway, a planned road that will connect Kikuyu town to the town of Ruaka, both in Kiambu County.
“We are very proud of Family Bank for coming to Kiambu County at such a timely season when we are laying out plans for Wangige in terms of buildings, markets, bus parks, among other infrastructures. Coming to open this Wangige branch shows the need for economic empowerment for our people. As a county, we are committed to not only support Family Bank but also support the business community in Kiambu,” said Kiambu County Governor H.E James Nyoro.
Those present at the opening ceremony include Kabete Member of Parliament Hon James Githua (Wamacukuru), Deputy County Commissioner Mr. Okaka Etiang and Family Bank Founder and Director T.K. Muya.
