About the Publication

Thumbnail 1Commissioned by the Financial Sector Deepening Trust Kenya (FSDK), this preliminary scoping study presents the outcome of an analytical review of markets and poverty in northern Kenya. It begins with a definition of financial graduation models tracing the evolution of approaches and pathways out of poverty which have informed these models. The subsequent sections provide an analysis of poverty and different livelihoods in northern Kenya. Finally, the value chains approach is used to identify promising interventions for developing markets and enabling the very poor to engage in them.
