INTRODUCTION

ASSEK is seeking to engage a Consultant or Organization with the right skills and experience to deliver a 4-month acceleration program that seeks to improve the quality of products/services, visibility, sales & marketing, financial position including profitability and access to credit, business management processes, and compliance of 150 MSMEs.

The consultant (we highly encourage a consortium of partners) will implement the program in the selected 6 counties, namely Machakos, Nairobi, Laikipia, Bomet, Turkana, and Uasin Gishu.

This program seeks to empower MSMEs by enhancing their capacity and strengthening the MSME ecosystem, with a primary focus on fostering Intra-Africa trade. The program addresses the challenges faced by MSMEs in accessing markets, finance, and resources required to expand their operations beyond national borders. By providing targeted support and a comprehensive range of services, the program aims to enable MSMEs to seize the opportunities presented by Intra-Africa trade, thereby contributing to their sustainable growth and the economic development of Kenya.
