Business Sector Programme Support II

Denmark supports the Kenyan private sector through the Business Sector Programme Support II. The programme is being implemented from 2011 to 2015 and the Danish contribution is DKK 320 million.

The development objective of the second phase of the Business Sector Programme Support (BSPS II) is to create employment in micro, small and medium sized enterprises (MSME), especially for young women and men. This development objective derives from Vision 2030, which is setting out the long term goals for making Kenya a middle income country. Unemployment, especially among the youth, has continued to be a major challenge in Kenya. This is supported by the conclusions from the Danish initiated Africa Commission, which highlighted the importance of private sector development in order to more effectively increase economic growth and reduce youth unemployment.

 

The programme has the following three components:

  1. Improvement of the Business Environment
  2. Competitiveness of MSMEs
  3. Innovation and Piloting Green Energy

Under this sector programme we work with the following implementing partners:
