NCBA Bank has  kicked off a one-month long market activation across multiple states in the United States to engage with the diaspora community.

Commenting on the initiative, NCBA Group director, retail banking,  Tirus Mwithiga said :  “This market activation presents an invaluable opportunity for us to engage directly with our diaspora customers, understand their challenges as we continue to tailor our solutions towards their financial well-being.”  He added : “ Ultimately, our goal is to establish meaningful relationships with Kenyans living abroad and to demonstrate how NCBA can support their financial aspirations irrespective of geographical boundaries. Whether you’re looking to manage your finances back home, invest in Kenya, or secure credit facilities for various purposes, our team is here to assist you every step of the way.”
