Over the years, Equity bank has grown to become the most trusted and the one with the most clients in Kenya. To be the best in Kenya considering the amount of competition is no easy feat. At first, I wasn’t banking at Equity but a few years ago, I got the nudge and now, they are my number 1 bank. Some of the reasons I like equity include their availability. They have so many branches in all towns in Kenya. If you can’t find a branch nearby, then best believe there is an equity agent nearby. They also have the lowest cost of opening bank accounts in Kenya. Added to that, with just a deposit of kes 500, you get an account plus a Visa Card. Their card is also the most reliable for online shopping for sites like Amazon and also to receive payments through PayPal. I also know for a fact that their mobile app is the most user-friendly and has all the perks of you want to monitor your spending etc. Equity is for the people and that’s why I choose to bank with them.
