‘I want to ask all Christians to take this chance,’ Rachel Ruto drums up support for Hustler Fund
First Lady Rachel Ruto has called upon Kenyans to utilise the
Hustler Fund as a means to grow their businesses and secure economic freedom.
Speaking when she attended a church service at the Redeemed Gospel Church
International in Nairobi on Sunday, Mrs. Ruto warned faithful against
dismissing as insignificant the fund, which is giving loans of between Ksh.500 to Ksh.50,000.
“The Hustler Fund was launched last week and I want to ask
all Christians to take this chance. Most of the times we do not have the funds
to grow our businesses but with this fund, which might seem small to some
people, is what will take you to the next level,” said the first lady.
She further challenged Christians to embrace the spirit of business
so that they can in turn get funds to support the ministry.
“I urge Christians to keep working hard in business so that
we can in turn help the work of God. Christians should not be left out of
government projects. Let us follow the government’s activities keenly so that
we are not left behind for lack of awareness,” Mrs. Ruto said.
Fund was unveiled by President William Ruto on Thursday. According to government
data released on Saturday, Kenyans have
so far borrowed Ksh.1.381 billion from the Hustler Fund, with the number of
loans issued currently standing at 2,346,675.
The government additionally said 5,191,542
people have since registered for the fund.
The data showed that Kenyans are making
approximately 223 loan transactions per second on the digital lending system
while Ksh.48.5 million has since been paid back by loan applicants.
