Although Chamber members are registered businesses, the majority of businesses in Kenya operate informally and are not legally registered. KNCCI works with a majority of these informal businesses to ensure they are formalized so that they can grow and develop into enterprises capable of operating at national and global level. A large population of Kenyans operates within the informal sector, which is dominated by micro and small businesses. Their formalization would enhance greater economic development in Kenya through sustainable trade and investment. The Chamber also assists Kenyans to register, incubate, mentor and expand their businesses.
