Ecobank Kisumu started as an idea of setting up a bank across West Africa and then the whole of Africa for the wider business community. The Founders of the Ecobank Group envisioned an African bank for Africans.
The dual objectives of Ecobank are to enable a modern pan-African bank to thrive and to contribute to the economic development and financial integration of the continent.
Ecobank Kisumu is committed to economic development across sub-Sahara Africa. In October 1985 the first Ecobank affiliate opened in Togo.
Despite the political upheaval of the 1980’s in Africa, and against all odds, the Ecobank Group opened branches in five African countries in 1988. From 1997 to 2001 the group’s coverage increased from five to twelve countries.
Today, the Ecobank Group is a world-class institution and a torchbearer for Africa. With a presence in 35 sub-Sahara African countries, the Ecobank brand is synonymous with banking in Africa.
