  • Since 2014, Kenya has been ranked as a lower middle income country because its per capita GDP crossed a World Bank threshold.
  • In 2016, the government enacted legislation that limits interest rates banks can charge on loans and set a rate that banks must pay their depositors. This measure led to a sharp shrinkage of credit in the economy.
