OUR STORY

Sumac Microfinance Bank was established in 2004 by a group of 14 investors who came together as a chama. We subsequently opened our doors to the public as Sumac Credit Ltd with a mission to empower entrepreneurs who had found the going tough owing to the stringent loan requirements by commercial banks.

Later on, we transitioned into a microfinance institution and upon the enactment of the Microfinance Act in Kenya. We applied to the Central Bank of Kenya for a license to operate as a Deposit-taking microfinance bank, were successful eventually.

We have since become key players in the micro-finance sector, and have a successful history of disbursing loans to businesses that have become a remarkable story of exceptional achievements.

We have gained exemplary reputation in the market place, and our products have become easily accessible banking facilities that will remain the hallmark of reliability and dependability in as far as building business enterprises is concerned.
