Creatives wish for affordable financial access to nurture their talents
In Mombasa, 25 creatives convened at the Swahilipot Hub in a session organized by Enicapital foundation in collaboration with Ecobiz Sacco. During the workshop, the creatives shared some of their experiences with personal financial management. The Creative industry was largely impacted by the lockdowns as an effect of the COVID-19 pandemic. Many lost their primary sources of income and this greatly affected their wellness. Access to financial products for this sector is also limited as they do not have traditional forms of ‘security’ that financial institutions require. The participants went through a financial goal setting session moderated by Enicapital Foundation and had great lessons to share, their hope was renewed.
