State of the Economy

The Kenyan’s economy adjustment post COVID 19 has been characterized by mixed performance. The government policies geared towards entrenching recovery and subsequently sustained growth have had to contend with both local and external shocks. The state of the economy therefore present challenges and opportunities that businesses and households have to bear.

Leveraging Sentiment to Determine Consumer Needs

Dilip Makanjee — Director, Market Planner, TransUnion Africa

As much as 41% of Kenyan households' income is worse than planned as of Q2 2023, signalling a critical need for a comprehensive assessment of the financial health of Kenyan consumers. In this pivotal context, this presentation will delve into an in-depth analysis based on responses from surveyed participants nationwide. The study will encompass three key areas: the evolution of household income, how consumers manage their expenses and debt obligations, and their financial intentions for the rest of the year.

We will use sentiment analysis to provide a forward-looking perspective on the potential credit risks associated with Kenyan consumers. The primary objective of this presentation is to offer a comprehensive overview of the current financial health of Kenyan consumers, with a focus on credit risk, and provide insights that can help financial institutions and policymakers make informed decisions to manage and mitigate risks.
