Competitive, market and regulator analysis for a U.K based investment firm
A U.K based investment firm, approached us to support their debt investment into a regional microfinance payroll lender.
We evaluated the company’s market positioning, the MFI landscape in Kenya, regulatory environment and industry trends – to develop six actionable recommendations to guide the MFI’s expansion. Our work allowed the foreign investor to better understand the target country’s investment climate and market characterization.
The investment enabled a significant expansion of the company’s loan book, allowing it to improve access to credit to low-income households.
This engagement was executed through USAID’s East Africa Trade & Investment Hub
