Palladium International, LLC is the implementing contractor of the USAID funded Kenya Investment Mechanism (KIM).
The Kenyan livestock sector is dominated by small producers. The livestock population is concentrated in the arid and semi-arid lands (ASALs), which cover about 75 percent of the total land surface. In ASALs the livestock sector accounts for 90 percent of employment and more than 95 percent of family incomes. Kenya’s livestock sector is primed to grow exponentially over the next decade and anchor the country’s food sufficiency amid a rapid
rise in the human population.
KIM has partnered with Family Bank to unlock finance to the agriculture sector in Kenya. KIM is supporting Family bank to revamp and develop its livestock financial product segment targeting the beef sector that is largely supporting the economies of the arid and semi-arid (ASAL) counties including Turkana, Isiolo, Marsabit, Wajir, Garissa and Samburu, among others in Kenya. The product development will focus on supporting a research and development of a financial product proposal aimed at supporting the bank provide financing solutions to animal farmers doing business in a feedlot setup. Family bank partnership with USAID KIM program activity through the Pay for Results incentive program will unlock over $38 million of new financing to the agricultural sectors targeting livestock, horticulture, dairy, energy for agriculture and, agricultural export food value chains.
Through this consultancy, the technical expert will support Family bank to develop a livestock financing product targeting feedlot management and financing.
