NAIROBI, Kenya, May 28 – Family Bank’s gross profit rose 24.3 percent to Sh1.3 billion in the three months to March last year, compared to a similar period last year, supported by high interest income.

However, interest expenses increased by 47.1 percent to Sh2 billion.

“The bank remains resilient in the difficult operating environment. We remain committed to supporting our customers’ needs, investing in our workforce and optimizing our operational efficiency.
