Stanbic Bank inaugurated its branch in Kisumu City in response to the expanding market and the dynamic customer needs.
The new branch is set to be a one-stop hub where customers can carry out all their banking and transaction needs 24/7 anytime with the inclusion of Cash Deposit Machines and ATMs.
Following the branch opening, the Stanbic Kenya Foundation signed an MoU with the county government, part of the bank’s FutureNiDigital campaign.
The campaign was launched in 2021.
This is in line with the bank’s It Can Be brand promise to support and empower the communities in which they operate in, and in turn drive Kenya’s socio-economic growth. #StanbicInKisumu#ItCanBe pic.twitter.com/O1LVayfSxc
