Many businesses in Kenya and the region, particularly SMEs, require capital to finance their growth strategies and long-term goals. A number of them though may be unable to access bank loans or other debt financing (due to lack of conventional collateral, for example). This is when businesses look towards private equity firms to invest requisite capital in the form of equity, quasi equity, convertible debts and/or term loans.
