Century Microfinance Bank Limited (“Century”) is a Microfinance institution that specializes in providing financial services to Micro, Small and Medium Businesses at large. However, our primary focus is to serve the agricultural sector which has largely been under served by financial institutions. We were licensed by the Central Bank of Kenya as a deposit taking microfinance institution on 19th September 2012 to provide the full range of financial services such as savings accounts and credit. Century has over 15,000 clients many of whom are being served remotely using a branchless approach on the back of a technology platform.
Our aim is to pursue and unlock the vast potential that lies in the businesses and farmers within the agricultural sector using the value chain financing approach. As we do this, the ripple effect will be the growth of economic generating activities in terms of knowledge, quality produce and tangible wealth. As a fully licensed institution our services although primarily focused on the agricultural sector will be targeted to all businesses that fall within the description of small and micro enterprises.
The products we offer will enable our client to improve their status in life. We aim at the productivity of the client to enable them achieve their full potential which has hitherto been elusive due to the perceived risky nature of providing financial services to the Micro, Small and Medium Businesses sector and more so the agricultural sector.
We achieve this by emphasizing the immense benefits of empowering the client through a discipline of consistent and deliberate savings to achieve both short term and long term goals.
