Some of the problems facing trade in Kenya include;

  • Scarcity of goods - Some goods required by consumers in given places may be lacking may be due to adverse conditions.
  • Most parts of the country have poor transport network making it difficult to transport good to various markets.
  • Inadequate capital - Most traders operate small scale and have to rely on banks to expand their trading activities
  • Insecurity - In some area traders may be attacked by thugs and lose their goods hence invest in heavy and security systems that eats their profits.
  • Trade restrictions/barriers - The government may impose restrictions on goods to be imported or exported.
  • Dumping of goods - This refers to the selling of goods in an external market at a price cheaper than that charged in the exporting country.
