    Hustler Fund will debut before year’s end, says Ruto.

    Published on

    President William Ruto has reiterated that the Kenya Kwanza Hustler Fund would be operational by the end of the year, December.

    He said that Sh50 billion per year will be allocated to help out local businesses(MSMEs) of all sizes.

    This promise was given by the President on Saturday at the opening of Thiba Dam in Kirinyaga county.

    The Hustler Fund will be available in December. It will be accessible through Saccos with no security. Prepare to lend at single-digit interest rates.

    He said.

    Investment and credit institutions will serve as intermediaries for the cash transfer.

    Ruto said that ‘hustlers,’ or those working for low wages without collateral, would gain from the fund.

    During his inaugural address, Ruto promised low-interest loans to ordinary Kenyans via a Hustler Fund.

    Savings and credit cooperatives (SACCOs) will use the money to help its members get their enterprises off the ground and growing.
