The government seeks to roll out the first distribution of the fund on December 1, 2022. During the campaign period, President Ruto said the money would be distributed as grants.

But upon assuming office, the President said the funds will be given as loans.

“It is not free money; it is business money you will repay…We want to ensure that Kenyans do not fall prey to shylocks who charge extremely high-interest rates on loans,” the president said.
