On March 6th 2020, the European Union, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark (Danida), the African Development Bank (AfDB) and Kenya Climate Innovation Center (KCIC) launched the AgriBiz Program aimed at accelerating the engagement of women and youth in the agribusiness sector. The program which is funded by the European Union and Danida at a cost of KShs. 5.1 billion aims at supporting 2,400 women and youth-led agribusiness enterprises across Kenya. It is projected to create of 17,000 job opportunities. It addresses key challenges that hinder youth and women from tapping into the immense potential in the agricultural sector.

AgriBiz is being implemented jointly with eight selected county governments but also benefits the regional economic blocks within these counties. Business Incubation Hubs (BIHs) have been set up within these eight counties. The BIHs provide training, business advisory and financing to enable women and youth to gain the requisite skills needed to scale their agribusinesses.

KCIC is placing a call for applications to enroll women and youth entrepreneurs into the program. Successful applicants benefit from agribusiness entrepreneurship opportunities available within their localities as well as the other services offered within the BIHs.

We welcome youth and women in agribusiness in different parts of Kenya to apply for incubation into AgriBiz. Kindly click on the Business Incubation Hub (BIH) nearest to you and apply there. Applying in a county that is too far from your enterprise will lead to automatic disqualification.
