Kenya Markets Trust is a Kenyan non-profit institution that works in partnership with the private sector; county & national governments; associations; local and international partners to unleash large scale, sustainable market growth by changing the underlying incentives, capacities and rules that shape how market systems work.
We focus on market systems and value chains as these are the main mechanisms through which wealth is created and growth occurs. Our long-term goal is to deliver large scale, systemic change in selected markets that benefits all players including small businesses, larger firms, investors, producers and consumers, and the country at large.
To achieve this, we identify markets with high growth potential but which are saddled with systemic constraints. Working with key market actors, policy makers 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 competitiveness in these sectors, ultimately creating a market system that is profitable to investors, improves incomes for suppliers and is beneficial to consumers.
