DEG’s network in Nairobi

Together with its partner bank I&M and the Delegation of German Industry and Commerce (AHK) in Kenya, DEG has set up a German Desk in Nairobi for Kenya and neighbouring markets, offering financial solutions for medium-sized German companies and their local trading partners.

In the countries we support we cooperate closely with KfW . This enables us to offer our customers an attractive one-stop service, especially for larger investments. In Nairobi our colleagues are located in the same building, so distances are short. We are also well connected with other development finance institutions on the ground such as Proparco, BIO or BII. The German embassies and also Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) are equally important partners.
