Kenya Markets Trust is a Kenyan organization that works in partnership with the private sector, county and national government to unleash large scale, sustainable market growth by changing the underlying incentives, capacities, and rules that shape how markets work.
We focus on markets as they are the main mechanism through which wealth is created and growth occurs and our long-term goal is to deliver large scale, systemic change in selected markets that benefit all players including small businesses, larger firms, investors, producers, and consumers.
To achieve this, we identify markets with high growth potential but which are saddled with systemic constraints. Working with key market actors, policymakers and other stakeholders, we address these constraints to improve competitiveness, efficiency, and inclusiveness. As a result, we hope to grow the range of market opportunities, support competition in these sectors, eventually creating a market system that is profitable to investors, improves incomes for suppliers and is beneficial to consumers.
