Small and medium sized businesses are key aspects of economic progress in every country and their internationalization is thought to be essential to the growth of the economy and firm growth. Micro, small, and medium-sized businesses have endured a great deal of failure and death in Kenya, despite the fact that they are crucial for increasing employment, capital base, and revenue. The performance of the small and medium sized enterprises in Kenya’s internationalization remains dismal because more focus by the government has been on foreign investors.
