As stated by the IFC, the project is a technical assistance to the Government of Kenya aimed at assisting in the stabilization and recovery phases of the financial sector in Kenya from the impact of the COVID 19 pandemic, by enhancing the credit information sharing environment. The project will be organized across three main components: i) component 1 - supporting the CIS mechanism, (ii) component 2 - risk-based pricing (RBP), and (iii) component 3 - MSME support. IFC will support the Central Bank of Kenya to strengthen credit reporting supervision, and in their efforts to enhance lending policies and protect customers. This project also supports the private sector through technical assistance to financial institutions such as banks to improve their internal rating models as a key component of compliance and risk-based pricing of credit. Support will also be provided to the Credit reference Bureaus on opportunities to provide additional credit scores targeting MSMEs, usage of alternative data in credit scoring, and awareness to borrowers on consumer protection practices.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF IFC/MIGA
The Compliance Advisor Ombudsman (CAO) is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an IFC or MIGA- financed project. If you submit a complaint to the CAO, they may assist you in resolving a dispute with the company and/or investigate to assess whether the IFC is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. If you want to submit a complaint electronically, you can email the CAO at CAO@worldbankgroup.org You can learn more about the CAO and how to file a complaint at http://www.cao-ombudsman.org
