Cube Movers Limited

FSD Kenya has, since its inception in 2005, sought to catalyse the financial sector to address challenges faced by growing businesses. As FSD Kenya engaged with this market, it became increasingly apparent that there was a poor understanding of what the Kenyan SME finance landscape actually looked like. It was in this context that FSD Kenya’s GrowthCap project embarked on a market study, in late 2014, to map out the Kenyan SME finance landscape.
