In the heart of Bungoma lies a small yet powerful hub of economic activity that has its own unique charm. Picture this: Chwele town nestled amidst the slopes of Mt Elgon, a place where both fertile land and cash flow abundantly.

Every Monday, the town springs to life as its vibrant market opens its gates to traders and buyers hailing from nearby towns like Kimilili, Luanda, Mt Elgon, Sirisia, and Lurende. This bustling market is not your run-of-the-mill open-air bazaar; it holds its own against the renowned Karatina Market in Nyeri, which is second only in terms of size and transaction volume.

Now, let’s dive into the impressive figures this place boasts. Brace yourself for some awe-inspiring numbers! Chwele’s annual turnover alone amounts to a staggering Ksh3 billion. Imagine the sheer magnitude of this massive fresh produce market, supporting thousands of tonnes of cereals, fruits, veggies, and legumes. It’s no wonder the cash registers are singing!

However, the real game-changer arrived with the introduction of NCBA Bank in Chwele. This development marks just the beginning of the town’s thriving trade scene. With Chwele being an agri-business hub, the presence of a banking institution here is set to unlock numerous opportunities. Imagine easier access to credit for suppliers, wholesalers, and retailers. Farmers will benefit from asset financing solutions tailored to their agricultural activities. Traders can finally bid farewell to the risk of physically transporting money to banks in far-off towns. Moreover, this financial leap forward is expected to attract investors across various industries, bringing a surge of economic activity to the town.

But let’s not forget the impact on the people of Chwele. Brace yourself for a wave of positive change! Job opportunities will multiply, thanks to increased business activities. The local food production will soar to new heights, ensuring a more abundant supply. And let’s not overlook the fact that suppliers, wholesalers, and retailers will now have easier access to business loans, paving the way for their growth and success. With all these incredible transformations on the horizon, it’s impossible not to feel a sense of excitement for the future of Chwele town.

Of course, the success of this new venture rests in the hands of NCBA Bank. They’ve made promises to bank the unbanked traders of Chwele, and the community eagerly awaits their fulfillment. After all, all eyes are on them, and the expectations are high. The stage is set for an inspiring journey, and we can’t wait to witness the incredible impact that NCBA and Chwele town will create together.
