Municipality of Eldoret

 

Eldoret Municipality presents unique opportunities and cuts a competitive edge in the region as a special location for investments.
It stands out because of the following reasons:

Strategic location

Eldoret, an attractive town, built in the centre of the fertile Uasin Gishu plateau, it is situated about half-way between Nairobi and Kampala, the capital cities of Kenya and Uganda respectively. Thus it is strategically located as a regional financial, communication and transportation hub.
Major international banks have their regional headquarters in Uasin Gishu.


Infrastructure

Eldoret Municipality is considered to have developed infrastructure and is well connected to other regions of the country as well as neighbouring states by road, air and rail.
Established in 1955, Eldoret International Airport is located approximately 17 km, by road, south of the central business district
of Eldoret, the administrative headquarters of Uasin Gishu and comercial capital of the North Rift region and has several airlines operating within the airport enabling the tourist to choose one of their choices.
There is also an airstrip that eases air travel to and out of the region. The Kenya-Uganda railway system traverses the great Rift Valley, through the town of Eldoret, enters Uganda at Malaba and passes through Tororo and Jinja to enter Kampala, Uganda’s capital where it is connected to other
regional towns.
The town is within the Kenya-Uganda highway. It is connected and is the gateway to the South Sudan among other regions in the East African Community.

Health

The county also hosts Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital (MTRH) Eldoret, the country’s second-largest facility that provides health services to residents in the Western Kenya region and also from the neighbouring states. The region has a total of 201 health facilities:115 public facilities
and 86 private health care institutions.

 Hospitality

It has leading hospitality facilities, making it conducive for travellers who want to put up in the region. The hospitality of Uasin Gishu residents has seen continued growth in population in the town thus translating to great opportunities for wealth creation. Upcoming high-rise buildings are evidence of thriving economic activities in the town and its environs.
The county boasts of 137 hotels and about 110 restaurants. Most of which offer services that are of international standards.

Financial Services

Eldoret is the financial services hub for the North Rift Region. Currently, more than 30 banks operate from the town. Several microfinance and savings Credit and Cooperative Societies (SACCOs) have opened branches in the region owing to the conducive business opportunities.
Financing for various investment opportunities is readily available from the service providers.
