Growing Youth-Led Enterprises in Kenya

Over 800,000 youth enter the Kenyan labor market every year, competing for 80,000 new formal jobs. Without other opportunities (even college graduates take four years on average to find a job), many of these young people turn to business to realize their bold and ambitious dreams. According to the Kenyan national bureau of statistics, there are 7.3 million micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs) in Kenya, roughly one for every six people. Yet 46% fail within the first year, lacking the skills, capital, or connections to grow.
