Top Investment Top Areas Youth Can Explore In Kenya

Kenya has been experiencing steady growth for quite some time now. The economic forecast has been positive with the World Bank predicting a growth rate of 6.6 percent this year and 7 percent come 2017.  This momentum is being fuelled by massive investments in infrastructure and jobs, steps to improve the business climate, and a boost in exports. The East African country’s expansive fiscal policy has allowed them to finance infrastructure projects without exerting unnecessary pressure on domestic financial markets, and consequently keeping public debt within the 50 percent threshold.


This is not to say that there are no risks. The threat of terrorist attacks from Al-Shabaab cause security concerns, and negatively affect the tourism industry which is one of the country’s key sectors. Kenya’s manufacturing sector has also been stagnant in recent years, and there is a continued lack of competition and minimal production in manufacturing sub-sectors. Still, the positives outweigh the negatives. Here are some sectors that could provide worthwhile investment opportunities in Kenya:
