In the past we have supported gospel musicians such as Jimmy Gaits, Ben Githae and Paul Mwai launch their albums.The bank is also keen to lead in corporate stewardship with regard to environmental management. In this regard, Family Bank in partnership with the Municipal Council of Nakuru participated in a clean-up exercise for Nakuru Town. This initiative was well received and inspired the business community in the town to develop strategies for continuous improvement. Family Bank was the first bank in Kenya to introduce paperless banking through smart card technology that enables customers to transact without having to fill in deposit or withdrawal slips, this is a great step toward going green and being environmental friendly thus contributing towards the millennium development goal of ensuring environmental sustainability.
