Financial Sector Deepening Trust Kenya (FSDK)
Financial Sector Deepening Trust Kenya (FSDK) was established in 2005 as an independent trust to support the development of inclusive financial markets in Kenya. The conceptual underpinning of FSD Kenya’s work is the “making markets work for the poor” (M4P) approach, which allows agencies to build on a detailed understanding of market systems and a clear vision of the future to address systemic constraints and bring about large-scale, sustainable change.
FSD Kenya operates as an independent Trust under the supervision of professional trustees, KPMG Kenya, with policy guidance from a programme investment committee. Current funders include the UK’s Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO), Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the Swedish International Development Agency (Sida). . It aims to be bring financial services to the general population and small businesses in Kenya. Its online knowledge hub distributes financial data, data visualizations, research, and publications. Their work ranges from direct investment in market innovations to research and policy analysis. Everything they do seeks to harness financial solutions to meet the needs of lower income households and smaller scale businesses – to help them to manage scarce resources and invest in the future. In short, their aim is to make financial markets work better for the poor.
