The Coca-Cola System in Kenya, in corporation with the County Government of Laikipia, Absa and Amref Health Africa have launched an initiative to back small and micro businesses across the country to recover and reopen.

The Covid-19 pandemic had an enormous impact on the economy that saw most of them lose income and close. The provision is targeting 18,000 trade outlets across the country who will receive personal protective equipment, handwashing jerry cans, sanitizers, and garden furniture to enable them to enforce the obligatory social distancing.

The franchise committed Sh125 million towards supporting its trade partners and waste collectors, eateries, restaurants, bars and kiosks.
