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.

The Hustler 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.
