Kenya: Asset Building and Investment

Global Asset Building

Ecosandals Investment Ltd. has developed and implemented an asset-based development project in a shantytown outside Nairobi, Kenya. The goal of the project was to enable families to save and make investments in the Nairobi Stock Exchange. The project was modeled after CSD’s asset-building pilot projects in the U.S. and abroad.
