Kenya’s Equity Bank Seeks Investment Opportunities within Health Sector

Tuesday, March 3, 2015

Kenyan-based Equity Bank says it is interested in exploring investment opportunities within the country’s health sector, as it seeks to exploit increasing demand for healthcare in the country. The bank intends to open a chain of clinics across the East African country under the name “Equity Afia.”

The new business will operate as a franchised network under the social arm of the bank, Equity Group Foundation (EGF). It will offer “affordable and high quality” healthcare, the lender says.

“EGF, a non-profit-making operating foundation registered in Kenya, plans to execute a sustainable, integrated health model that uses a franchise approach to provide standardised, quality health care,” Business Daily quoted the bank as having said in a notice.
