This lender was created by the Kenyan government to support youths owned businesses to grow, in order to provide jobs for the large number of unemployed youths.

“The Youth Fund has restructured loans worth Sh31.2 million in the last three weeks. This will offer the much needed relief to businesses owned by youth during this trying moment,” said YEF acting chief executive Benson Muthendi.

Last month, the Central Bank predicted that up to 75 per cent of small businesses will collapse in the near future due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic which has brought the economy on its knees.
