    I agree that the Youth and Uwezo Funds have the capacity to transform the lives of young entrepreneurs in Kenya. However, the approach the government has taken to disburse these funds is wanting. Putting these funds on balance sheets of mainstream financial institutions to then on-lend to youth groups/individuals has not deepened financial inclusion of youth as most of the FIs have not altered their lending practices, terms and conditions to suit start-up businesses common among this group. Also disbursing this funds without any training or capacity building to ensure the funds are put to good use is like giving a layman an AK47 with the safety lever off….disaster waiting to happen.
