Co-operative Bank of Kenya

Co-operative Bank of Kenya (Co-op Bank), which was founded in 1965 as a co-operative society to support farmers to access financial services, has evolved into a universal bank that covers every sector of the economy but maintains a special focus on the co-operative movement.

The bank has over 156 branches across the country and has grown its agency banking (Co-op kwa Jirani) model to over 35,000 agents. The bank has been partnering with Savings and Credit Cooperatives (Saccos) providing them with a system that enables their members access banking services from the Co-op Bank.

Since partnering with the Kenya Investment Mechanism (KIM) in 2020, Co-op Bank has developed a portfolio of products targeting various agricultural value chains, ensuring that co-operative societies are able to support their members effectively and efficiently.  Through the partnership with KIM, Co-op Bank is supporting access to finance for a pipeline of enterprises that have worked with business advisory service providers to become investment ready.
