On Thursday, President William Ruto unveiled the Hustler Group Loan, the second offering from the Financial Inclusion Fund otherwise known as the Hustler Fund.

The loan product is designed to facilitate access to funds for groups comprising between 5 to 10 individuals.

President Ruto said the Group Micro Enterprise Loan products will allow members to borrow between Sh20,000 and Sh1,000,000.

“I am glad that this launch of the group loan product is taking place against the backdrop of the phenomenal success of the Hustler Fund Personal Loan product. I expect this product will encounter even greater appetite from the market,” he said.
