Summary

Kenya is one of the fastest growing economies in Africa, with the economic growth rate at 5.7% between 2015 and 2019 according to world bank. With such a high economic growth rate, it attracts a lot of investors in all the sectors of business be it, agriculture, healthcare, finance, technology and so many more. Opportunities for growing Kenya are so many and varied.

However, even with such promise in Kenya, there is still the part of society that lies forgotten and desolate. In any neighborhood in Kenya you will find a divide between the elite and the poverty stricken estates. According to oxfarm.org , less than 0.1% of the population (8,300 people) own more wealth than the bottom 99.9%. Walking into different parts of downtown of Nairobi city early in the morning, you will realize that the streets are filled with homeless men, women and children, sleeping on cardboard boxes and covering themselves with potato sacks. Poverty in Kenya’s cities still astounds most given the fast growth of our economy.
