Financial Sector Deepening Kenya (FSD Kenya) is an independent trust dedicated to the achievement of an inclusive financial system that supports Kenya’s long-term development goals. We work closely with government, the financial services industry and other partners to develop financial solutions that better address the real-world challenges faced by low-income households, enterprises and underserved groups such as women. As a facilitator, FSD Kenya uses the markets systems development (MSD) approach.

FSD Kenya has identified gender and women’s economic empowerment (WEE) as one of the strategic drivers in its 2022-2026 strategy. The intention is to shift to a more transformational approach that puts the issues of women’s financial inclusion (WFI), WEE at the centre of all programme activity. This is a significant shift in how FSD Kenya will determine strategic priorities, activities and results tracking to ensure that women’s needs, and opportunities are the first thing considered.

FSD Kenya is looking for technical support to build and enhance the team’s capacity for gender integration.
