The Kenyan diaspora has become a powerful force in international economic landscapes during a time when globalization has eliminated obstacles and enabled smooth cross-border commerce. According to the CBK, January 2024 saw the highest remittance revenue in 4 years and a 18% increase since January 2023.

This indicates a positive trend, potentially suggesting growing prosperity among the Kenyan diaspora and their continued commitment to investing and supporting friends and family with the United States still the largest contributor to Kenya’s remittances.
