This loan product is relevant whether you have just realized an opportunity or have to cater for the upsurge of clientele. Kenya Women Finance Bank offers up to 100% financing in this fast processing loan.

Tujiunge Chama Account

Chama is one of those all too Kenyan things. Like having Ugali, Rice or Chapati accompany every meal. KWFT offers loans to the typical informal women groups and formal ones as well. It allows for professional management of the savings; the savings are safer and at the same time grows. The minimum opening and operating balances are also very friendly.
