Small Business Growth (Kuza) Fund

The current levels of unemployment in Kenya continue to force a great number of people to seek alternative forms of making a livelihood. With the high cost of formal financial services and the reduced physical presence of commercial bank branches, a large number of people are turning to informal financial arrangements to meet the cost of starting up and the working capital when setting up small-scale businesses. Through a close examination and extensive data collection on our area’s economic status, we initiated a revolving fund to enable small scale traders around get access to affordable, convenient and patient financing to enable a smooth running of their ventures.
