WHO WE ARE?
Epitome Kenya is a private limited company registered in Kenya. Its core business is to harness the economic power of the economically active by transforming and empowering their financial status for holistic human development; with an aim to achieve their desired goals through the provision of need driven financial products.
In a report by the Central Bank of Kenya, in the fiscal year 2014/2015, Commercial bank lending grew at a brisk pace exceeding the regulators targets of private sector credit expansion in nearly every month. This credit growth has contributed to some demand pressures in the economy resulting in the rise in non-food non-fuel (NFNF) inflation, also called core inflation. Supported by other factors like the falling Kenya shilling in the same period has resulted in the higher inflation rates experienced.
Epitome Kenya seeks to provide more affordable savings options than credit provision with higher returns on investments among the low and middle class who are highly affected by high inflation rates.
