Our History

Kenya Women Holding Ltd., hereinafter referred to as “KWH”, is a woman led, women serving not for profit organization. KWFT was established in 1981 to provide access to financial and non financial services to women entrepreneurs to enable them improve their economic status, their livelihoods and hence the wellness of their families. It is the largest Microfinance Institution in Kenya, working under 16 (sixteen) Regional Offices comprising 236 field offices.

Following the successful transformation of KWFT (regulation by Central Bank) two institutions emerged in April 2010: (a) a regulated deposit taking microfinance institution (KWFT – Microfinance) that mobilizes and manages savings deposits in addition to other existing financial services, and (b) the Holding company (KWH) that initially wholly owned the KWFT-DTM, remains not-for-profit, and engages in activities that empowers, positions and advocates for women.
