KCJF Counterfactual Study- A comparative study on the additionality of the Kenya Catalytic Jobs Fund on selected enterprises. 

Private sector growth has the potential to create jobs, raise incomes, and lift people out of poverty. Recognizing this, the Foreign and Commonwealth Development Office (FCDO), through the Kenya Catalytic Jobs Fund (KCJF) undertook to support innovative business models with a high potential to positively disrupt markets, create employment opportunities and deliver pro-poor impact. The programme takes the form of a challenge fund, with calls for proposals to select and support the best innovations, through a mix of grants and tailored technical assistance. For more than two years, the fund has supported a number of local companies to implement innovative solutions that have improved their operational efficiencies, increased productivity, strengthened supply and demand connectivity and widened opportunities for work along the respective supply/value chains.
