About FSD Kenya

The Kenya Financial Sector Deepening (FSD) programme was established by the UK’s Department for International Development (DFID) in early 2005 to support the development of financial markets in Kenya as a means to stimulate wealth creation and reduce poverty. Working in partnership with the financial services industry, the programme’s goal is to expand access to financial services among lower income households and smaller enterprises to create value through financial inclusion. It operates as an independent trust under the supervision of professional trustees, KPMG Kenya, with policy guidance from a Programme Investment Committee (PIC). Current funders include the Swedish International Development Agency (SIDA) and the Bill & Melinda Gates foundation.
