Economics
Although Kenya's economic performance has exceeded that of most other African nations, the benefits of this growth have been seriously diluted by a variety of factors. The large population growth, increasing economic inequality, and environmental deterioration have negatively affected Kenya. Kenya has a per capita income of less than $400.

Agriculture is the leading economic sector, accounting for 25% of the gross domestic product (GDP). Agriculture employs about 75-80% of working Kenyans. However, undependable weather conditions and a severe shortage of arable land hamper farming. In addition, soil erosion, deforestation, and desertification are increasing problems for Kenya's farmers. The nation's heavy dependence upon agriculture makes economic conditions for most Kenyans very difficult.
