It was also uncovered that, the key determinants of customer satisfaction were; timely services, language used by employee, accuracy of the services, dependability of employees, trust of the employees, appearance of the facilities, innovation of the products, customer service, simplicity in using the product and services and banks coverage. Further, the study found out that, employees faced several challenges in making customers satisfied. The main challenges were; communication breakdown, staff welfare, complicated procedures and limited number of staff. Furthermore, this study has revealed a positive but weak relationship between customer satisfaction and retention. It was recommended that, the management of CRDB sustains the good work of innovation of its products because this has been found to be one of the factors which customer considered in forming their satisfaction. It was also advised
that, employees strive to use good language to customers when rendering services because this is an issue customers always expect from service providers. Improper use of language leads to dissatisfaction which can have negative impact on retention.
