EPTF stands for Economic Projects Transformational Facility. In the early 90s, the informal sector was only beginning to stand out as an important sector in Kenya’s economy. EPTF was established by The Navigators-Kenya as an enterprise development organization in response to the harsh socio-economic reality of the day and to the rising poverty and unemployment levels. EPTF was registered as Economic Projects Trust Fund in 1991. In 2013, the organization re-branded to Economic Projects Transformational Facility retaining its abbreviation EPTF. It operates an an independent company but is part of The Navigators Kenya family.
