Understanding the banking sector: Strengthening information and analysis in Kenya


The objective of this report is to review existing sources of detailed data and analysis about the banking sector in Kenya, assess the demand for and uses of these and make pragmatic recommendations about how any unmet demand could be met.

The overall conclusion of this report is that generally the base data in Kenya is strong and can support a wide range of analysis. However, the manner in which these data are made available at present fails to encourage widespread use.
