MOMENTUM – Redefining Access To Financing For Machakos Residents

FRIDAY, 3RD JUNE, 2022 – SMEs are touted by reputable institutions – such as the World Bank,
as growth drivers responsible for economic growth. Regrettably, these businesses have limited access
to financing due to the broad-based perception of being too risky. This is in turn limiting to our
country’s economic potential.

It is against this background that Momentum Credit – a non-deposit taking financial institution, opened
its 12th branch in Machakos County on Friday 3rd June to continue providing working capital
solutions to Individuals and SMEs otherwise considered too risky by mainstream banking.

the recently introduced regulation – citing it as an opportunity for the category to rid of rogue players
while continuing to deliver credible non-bank lending to Kenyans.

a newly industrializing, middle-income country, providing a high quality of life to all its citizens in a clean and
