Kenyan Town without a Bank

Kendu Bay is a bay and town in Kenya. The area is the part of Rachuonyo North District in Homa Bay County. It is located on the shore of Lake Victoria along Katito-Homa-Bay road. It is the headquarters of the district. Kisumu, the largest urban centre in Kenya's western region, is located 40 kilometres north of Kendu Bay,

no mainstream bank has considered setting up a physical branch in the town despite being a key administrative unit and getting listed among the four primary urban centres in Homa Bay County.

According to the County Integrated Development Plan, Homa Bay, Mbita, Oyugis and Kendu Bay are recognised as townships based on their population of over 10,000 persons.

The collapse of Kendu Bay port and marine transport was the final nail in the coffin of the nascent urban centre that saw economic activities shift from the archaic Arab-owned shops to the busy Kisumu - Homa Bay and Kendu Bay - Oyugis roads.
