The Kenya Bankers Association (KBA) yesterday launched a new web portal as part of its rebranding process to mark its 50th anniversary.
The site will host a number of news briefs and information touching on the banks in Kenya.
The association, with currently 43 banks represented in its fold, promises that the portal will be interactive as well as inform users on the developments within the association.
Most banks in Kenya have embraced the ICT tools such as online banking and SMS banking, helping users to transact more flexibly. Banks have also embraced the use of mobile money transfers in Kenya.
The association is credited for allowing credit information sharing system between banks. The database helps applicants access bank loans and reduce risk.
The website has sections including Research Centre, where users can get bank-related reports. Consumer Information section informs users on credit sharing and other user-related information.
The site also lists the members of the Kenya Bankers Association.
