The government will create a Sh130 million revolving fund in 2017/18 financial year for lending to small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in the leather industry.

Industry, Trade and Co-operatives Cabinet secretary Adan Mohamed yesterday said the funds will be sourced from a regional financial institution and the Kenya Industrial Estates (KIE).
