CBK's MPC Meeting

Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) fixed the Central Bank Rate  (CBR ) at 9 percent for the second time during the 25th September meeting.

This means commercial banks regulated by the Central Bank will have up to a maximum of 13 percent as the interest rate to be charged on loans borrowed.

Led by the Central Bank Governor Patrick Njoroge, the committee came to the conclusion after noticing a decrease in Non Performing Loans (NPLs),tolerable inflation rates among other economic factors.
