Nairobi (Kenya) – During the launch of the Kenya Footwear Manufacturers Association 5 year strategic plan (2017-2022) the government continued with its commitment towards the development of the sector by announcing the setting up of a US$1 million pool for the establishment of a revolving fund to provide funds to SMEs at a preferential rate as well as the provision of space to develop clusters across the country, in the 47 Counties.

The Kenya Leather Development Council, in partnership with Kenya Industrial Estates (a government of Kenya parastatal), will develop working space as well as the modalities top provide, monitor and manage the funds. – []
