Co-op Bank is set to open five new branches, taking its total physical outlets to 160 despite the industry’s growing focus on digital banking channels.

The new branches will be based in Nairobi, Kapenguria, Maralal and Chogoria as the lender seeks to keep up with competition in cash-rich areas while also reaching out to underserved regions.

In Nairobi, Co-op Bank will add two more branches — one along Kenyatta Avenue at Standard Building and another at the upcoming Parliament tower.


Co-op bank Kenyatta Avenue branch is being opened today.


Still has too much focus on brick & mortar!!! Evolve to ICT banking too slow.


Sit back and watch the ride

Centum Investment Company has repaid a Sh8 billion loan it took from Co-operative Bank to develop the Two Rivers Mall in Nairobi.

The Nairobi Securities Exchange-listed firm used a new loan from South Africa's Standard Bank to retire the Co-op Bank debt.

It was repaid using another loan BUT the good news for Centum is - according to the article - the new loan is cheaper. The savings will flow through to the bottomline.

And they will probably add more debt from the savings to develop another project 😆

It is definitely a positive, but just another day of normal operations for both.

Which is a-OK as long as the new project/s yield a profit. Applause
One should accept that not all projects/investments will be successful and that is acceptable.

A very successful firm like Coca Cola has had products that flopped but the overall success has been spectacular.

Safaricom has had a few duds but the overall success is undeniable. MJ talked about how M-Pesa almost "killed off" at the beginning.

Even the legendary Warren Buffett has made a few dud investments over the years.

No pain, no gain.

This is a coop bank thread and we should be talking on the gains or losses to coop bank as a result of this transaction

It's neutral for Coop. It will move on to other borrowers.
