Kenya Chambers of Commerce and Industry (KNCCI) has signed a deal with the Equity bank and Mastercard to promote the Small and Micro Enterprises (SMEs) across the country.


Speaking in Nyamira later last week the Chambers’ National chairman for elections Mr. Benjamin Onkoba applauded the KNCCI’s chair Mr. Richard Ngatia for being passionate about the small traders.


He said that the deal will see the SMEs traders  receive a loan facility from the Equity bank at affordable interest rate hence increasing profits and expanding the business.


“I want to salute my National chairman Mr. Ngatia for being there for our small business owners which has seen him sign a deal with the Equity bank and the Mastercard which will promote the SMEs and expand the businesses across the nation.


I want to encourage our business owners more so the SMEs to grab this opportunity and register with KNCCI to be part of this transformative journey”, said Onkoba.


Onkoba was speaking in a Nyamira town hall meeting where County directors were elected.
Each county has 11 directors across the country.
