The Feed the Future Kenya Investment Mechanism

Speeches Shim

The Feed the Future Kenya Investment Mechanism (KIM) program is a five-year USAID project that is unlocking $400 million in investment for key sectors of Kenya’s economy, including agriculture, and for regional trade and investment opportunities under the Prosper Africa initiative. The program is addressing two principal market failures that have discouraged investors from financing certain segments of the clean energy and agriculture sectors: insufficient quality consulting services and limited availability of financial products tailored to agriculture and other key sectors of the economy.

KIM was designed to promote access to finance and mobilize substantial capital essential for fostering the development of Kenya’s agricultural market system. By unlocking finance necessary to commercialize upstream and downstream agribusinesses and other sectors, KIM will pull smallholders and SMEs into competitive and growth-oriented value chains, and contribute to USAID’s overall goal of fostering broad-based, sustained, and inclusive economic growth in Kenya.
