Founded by the European Union and the Kenyan Government, the Micro Enterprises Support Programme Trust (MESPT) is a Kenyan organisation that has been in operation since 2003. 

We are a financial institution and our objective is to promote economic growth, employment creation and poverty alleviation through support to enterprises. 

We achieve this through our intermediaries, who provide institutional support and capacity building, financial as well as business development services to improve the performance of enterprises (MSME, farmer groups and associations). 

Our aim is to strengthen financial intermediaries in order to establish a strong, stable, market-based micro-finance sector in Kenya.

Today, and testimony to our quality of service delivery, our founder base has grown to include among others, Danida who have been supporting our Agriculture and Business Sector Programmes. 

We have entered a five year funding partnership with Danida to upscale and ensure the sustainability of the Business Sector Programme Support (BSPS) programme.
