The Ministry’s role is to support the government’s agenda of uplifting the lives of millions of Kenyans at the bottom of the economic pyramid through cooperatives and MSMEs.We are partnering with Counties to implement further reforms in the Cooperatives and MSMEs sector. We have entered into an MOU with the council of governors (COG) towards implementing major cooperative sector interventions. Towards this end, a technical committee on coordination of the resolutions reached by the ministry and COG has been appointed to implement the joint resolutions.
