In a move to contribute to the growing use of electronic payments in Kenya, Guaranty Trust Bank Kenya (GTBank) today launched its platinum MasterCard to serve the country’s growing middle class.
The GTBank Platinum MasterCard comes with unique offerings such as priceless privileges including access to a range of special dining, travel, entertainment and other unique offers and experiences through the MasterCard Priceless Africa platform.
In a statement, Ms. Ibukun Odegbaike, Managing Director, GTBank, East Africa said: “The launch of GTBank’s new Platinum MasterCard is a commendable step in Kenya’s evolution into a cashless society, especially as it provides a wealth of benefits that will encourage cardholders to further use electronic payments over cash.”
