VisionFund Kenya formerly known as KADET Ltd was founded by World Vision Kenya in 2000, with an aim to establish a microfinance organization that would institutionalize professionalism in effective credit intermediation and economic empowerment through business support for remote communities. Over the years, VisionFund Kenya has steadily developed a dominant niche as the preferred rural financier, alongside developing a portfolio that demonstrates the sustainability of rural finance.
In partnership with World Vision Kenya, VFK is committed to economic empowerment of Kenya’s remote communities and works mainly by developing loan products that not only utilize the economic acumen of the customer, but also build their social and financial knowledge for both long and short term financial stability. The organization thus improves the lives of children in Kenya by offering small loans and other financial services to families living in poverty. Our work empowers our clients to grow successful businesses which enable children to grow up with improved health and education. Applying the principles of our Christian ministry we work in partnership with World Vision; committed to long-term change which will unlock potential for future generations.
VFK uses the group-based methodology for credit lending to its customers. This is not only cost effective but is also a prerequisite to effective outreach and rural penetration. Individual lending products are however selectively offered commensurate to the dynamic needs of a client. Overall, VFK offers Asset Loans, Business Loans, Agriculture Loans and School Fees Loans.
