In her role as the United Nations Secretary-General's Special Advocate for Inclusive Finance for Development, Queen Maxima embarks on a three-day sojourn to the Republic of Kenya, spanning from the 23rd to the 25th of October. Her royal presence graces the Kisumu International Airport, where the distinguished Governor of Kisumu County, Peter Anyang’Nyong’o, extends a warm reception.
This royal visit revolves around the augmentation of digital financial services, as well as the promotion of financial well-being and eco-friendly financial practices.
The Queen initiates her visit with two field excursions within the vicinity of Kisumu, situated proximate to Lake Victoria. Her interactions transpire with agriculturists who employ avant-garde digital insurance protocols to safeguard their interests against the adversities of severe droughts and copious rainfall. Later in the day, Queen Maxima proceeds to Nairobi for a rendezvous with burgeoning entrepreneurs. Here, they engage in discussions regarding their encounters with digital financial amenities proffered by fintech enterprises and banking institutions.
