Co-operative Bank has scaled up Customer Networking Forums for Micro, Small & Medium-sized Enterprises (MSMEs) and Saccos aimed at seeing the bank train its customers countrywide on strategies to grow their businesses in changing operating environments
Last week, Co-op Bank has hosted MSME customers for a breakfast networking forum in Lodwar Turkana county.
“An opportunity for them to connect, share inspiring conversations, and growth insights for business” The bank said.
The Customer Networking Forums are a key part of Co-op Bank’s MSME program as it is widely acknowledged that MSMEs need the insights and training on economic matters that have a direct bearing on their business, and which they have little or no control over.
The forums are being held across the country notably in Nyandarua, Laikipia and Nairobi counties.
They feature a detailed presentation by the bank economist on the opportunities in and out of the country that MSMEs can tap and the ways the bank is working to enable customers seize these opportunities.
