President William Ruto on Wednesday launched the Hustler Fund, one of his major agendas during campaigns.
Ruto unveiled the Fund at Green Park in Nairobi to fulfil a pledge he made to help ordinary Kenyans.
He outlined three objectives of the fund, which are mainly to create jobs, strengthen the economy and empower investors both domestically and internationally.
Ruto said the best strategy to accelerate economic growth and achieve shared prosperity is to empower millions of struggling yet willing and capable Kenyans and enlist them in gainful activity.
"Through the Plan, the government is committed to creating opportunities for millions at the bottom of our economic pyramid to work their way up and fulfil their aspirations," he said.
Before the launch, Ruto went round speaking to the business people who had come to showcase their products.
