The President noted that progress is being made in uplifting the lives of Kenyans, but more will be done.
“We are also on track to delivering affordable fertilisers to farmers. Our goal is to produce more to feed more and alleviate poverty in the country.”He announced that the first phase of the Hustler Fund has disbursed Sh24 billion to 19 million borrowers in 36.5 million transactions.
