Rolling competitive business challenge

Business Support

The Rolling Competitive Business Challenge offers incentives to small and medium-sized businesses looking to enter Kakuma. Under this banner, we  support established companies, social enterprises, and local entrepreneurs in implementing commercially viable and sustainable businesses that have the potential to raise incomes, provide goods and services, create jobs and/or improve living standards in both the camp and host community. Private sector companies and social enterprises compete for performance-based grants, which also require co-financing from the companies. For micro and small enterprises from the Kakuma area, grants and technical assistance are provided by the AECF and IFC, with the goal to ‘graduate’ these businesses in order for them to access expansion resources from MFIs and other financial institutions.
