Securing credit for growth: The case for a new asset register in Kenya


This report provides an overview of Kenya’s current policy, and the legal and practical framework for registration of movable asset collateral – including leases. It also outlines the future impact of a modern movable asset registry in increasing access to credit for SMEs. The report therefore looks closely at Vision 2030: it examines it both as the established policy platform for the potential development of a movable asset registry, as well as other relevant policy goals established in connection with Vision 2030.
