The Central Bank of Kenya (CBK), Financial Sector Deepening Kenya, Kenya National Bureau of Statistics
and faculty at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology are collaborating to launch a Research Paper
Competition on the topic of Financial Inclusion in Kenya.
People’s ability to participate within the more formalised markets which characterise the modern sector of an economy is often conditioned by the degree of access to the financial system. Exclusion from finance can result in exclusion from opportunities to participate productively in value chains.
