The growth was primarily driven by strong partnerships and an increase in non-interest income.

Total non-interest income increased by 22.4 percent to close at KES 2.7 billion for Q3’2022. Supported by a strong capital base, the balance sheet size grew with total assets increasing by 19.9% closing at KES128.5 billion.

“As a Bank, we continue to create a healthy operating environment that provides consistent growth and profitability to our customers as we build a sustainable business that goes beyond profit,” said Family Bank CEO Rebecca Mbithi.

Net interest income increased by 9.8 % to KES 6.2 billion, supported by an increase in interest income on loans and advances and government securities which grew by 16.6 % and 40.7 % respectively.

Similarly, non-funded income increased by 22.4% from KES 2.3 billion to KES. 2.7 billion for the period under review with income from fees and commissions registering a decline of 50.1% to stand at KES 84.6 million.
