Kenya’s Largest Bank To Provide 100% Financing For Riders To Acquire 100,000 Electric Motorcycles!

The KCB Group  in collaboration with United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR) are ready to help Kenyans with green loans in their effort to help Kenya government to achieve their net zero targets by 2030.

Well, KCB is the largest financial services organization in East Africa in terms of asset size. The Group is headquartered in Nairobi, Kenya, with subsidiaries in Kenya, Rwanda, South Sudan, Tanzania, Uganda, and Burundi. In 2007, the KCB Foundation was established to implement the KCB Bank Group’s Corporate Social Responsibility programs and as a sign of commitment to sustainable development to alleviate poverty and enhance well-being Kenya will put 100,000 electric motorbikes and tuk-tuks on the roads within the next six years. The undertaking is a great and important joint project that will help many.

Specifically, KCB will provide “green loans” through local dealers for the purchase of a total of 100,000 electric motorbikes and electric tuk-tuks. The project, which will run for six years, will start in Machakos near the capital Nairobi and will then be rolled out successively throughout Kenya.

“The government has prioritized the adoption of e-mobility, to achieve a number of targets. There is a need to reduce carbon emissions by 32 per cent by 2030. In 2022 emissions in the transport sector were estimated to be 1.26 million tones of carbon dioxide,” Kenyan Cabinet Secretary for Roads and Transport, Kipchumba Murkomen.

        That's great news! This is a great initiative to reduce carbon emissions and push for more sustainable transportation options in Kenya. Hopefully this program will be successful and can be implemented in other countries across the continent.
