Kenya MSME Covid-19 Resilience and Recovery Program 2020-2021
Applications are now open for Covid-19 Resilience and Recovery Program for Kenyans. The Covid19 Resilience and Recovery program is an initiative by KEPSA in partnership with Mastercard Foundation aimed at supporting Kenya businesses that have been affected by COVID19.
Our main role as KEPSA is to engage with the Government in ensuring that there is a favourable environment for doing business through our Public Private Dialogue platforms.
This program seeks to provide financing to businesses that normally find it difficult to access financing from formal lending institutions such as banks and micro-financers.
