Description of Program​

The KCJF is a £5M UK – Aid-funded programme designed to test and support innovative enterprises that have the potential to catalyse job creation for the youth and vulnerable populations in Kenya, at scale.

The fund seeks to support innovations aimed at increasing international competitiveness in agriculture and manufacturing; support innovations aimed at raising productivity and/or supporting shifts into the formal sector; diversify risks and access larger, longer duration loans in order to grow micro-enterprises; catalyse sustainable change in sectors and geographies that have the potential to create employment and increase incomes for disadvantaged groups, including women and people living with disabilities (including semi-arid lands).

Target Impact

The intended programme impact is increased or improved productive employment opportunities for poor young men and women in target sectors and geographies.

Target outcomes

  • Increased number and quality of jobs for young and vulnerable people
  • Expanded innovative solutions or new technologies unlock barriers to productivity in formal & informal sectors
  • Improved enterprise performance in the selected sectors (via productivity gains, investment and/or growth)
