Most expensive banks in Kenya 2020

Currently, Kenya has a total of 43 commercial banks serving a population estimated to be approximately 52 million.

9 more foreign banks have shown the interest in setting up shop in Kenya which will make it 52 commercial banks.

One of the major services that Kenyans have been seeking from the majority of commercial banks is loans.
