Capacity Building for MSME Lending in Kenya

April 2022

The Dutch entrepreneurial development bank, FMO, is providing funding to Frankfurt School of Finance and Management to support Sidian Bank in Kenya in expanding its services to micro, small, and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) with a specific focus on women and youth entrepreneurs, as well as MSMEs active in the agriculture sector.

Making Cents will work with the Frankfurt School by conducting a baseline assessment of the financial needs of women and youth entrepreneurs in Kenya and carrying out an institutional assessment and portfolio analysis of Sidian Bank. Based on the results of these assessments, Making Cents will provide recommendations to Sidian Bank to design new products and services to reach these target groups.
