Transport and Logistics Awards was initiated to create sustainable transport in Kenya and has played a key part in fostering inclusive growth in businesses and expanding access to essential services in Kenya and the East African Community as a region.
NCBA Bank shares in the goal of creating sustainable transport in Kenya by providing access to affordable financing options. Last year, the bank launched a logbook loan product that has enabled Kenyans access up to 50 per cent financing against an owned vehicle at the lowest price in the market that not only enables customers unlock value in the vehicles they own but also cushions them from predatory lending witnessed in this space.
The bank has also partnered with leading car dealers in Kenya such as Isuzu, CFAO Group, Simba Corp, Tata and CMC Motors among others to give customers more options to own cars with ease.
