Evaluation of KCB and Multiparty Guarantees and an Assessment on Prospects of Guarantee Projects in Kenya

Tana Copenhagen is conducting an evaluation assignment for Swedish International Development Agency (Sida) for its guarantee projects in Kenya. The first purpose of the evaluation is to evaluate the guarantees that were a part of the portfolio from 2012 until 2020 and asses its development results. A second purpose is to help the Embassy of Sweden in Kenya to explore future prospects on guarantees based on: the lessons learned from the first part of the evaluation; considering Sida’s new development strategy in Kenya 2021-2025; benefitting from the current programmes in the agriculture and market development portfolios; and the current economic and financial situation in the country. The considerations on prospective guarantees should focus on SMEs in agriculture (as the previous ones) but also other relevant sectors and target groups in Kenya.
