Practical Action Consultancy to undertake a Market and Comparative Product Analysis in Kisumu County



Practical Action is a change-making organisation that works in unconventional ways. We bring people together in bold collaborations, using knowledge and innovation, to build futures free from poverty and help shape a world that works better for everyone.

Practical Action in partnership with Kisumu Urban Apostolate Program (KUAP) is implementing a 3-year UK Aid Match grant by DFID titled “A Safe Pair of Hands (SPOH) Project’’ within the urban informal settlements of Nyalenda A, Nyalenda B and Obunga of Kisumu County.

The project is seeking the services of a consultant or consultancy firm to undertake a market and comparative product analysis.

The consultant/consultancy firm will be expected to undertake a detailed market mapping and comparative product analysis of all the existing and viable local supply chains of soap (both liquid & solid) and handwashing facilities within Kisumu County (proximity to SPOH’s project sites most preferred).

The primary basis for this assignment will be to help spot gaps in the entire local supply chain, identify the consumer needs one would wish to have a better understanding of so as to cast a wider net for products (soap and handwashing facilities) and services (e.g. soap making trainings) that would satisfy those needs.

The ultimate aim will be to improve hygiene and sanitation standards by stimulating private

sector involvement.

The consultant will work with Practical Action, Kisumu Urban Apostolate Programme (KUAP), Kisumu Business community (market leaders/representatives) County Government (Department of trade and industry, social services, youth) during the whole process of desk review, scoping, consultations and key meetings with stakeholders.

The consultant will be supervised by Practical Action dedicated staff, and receive backstopping support during the duration of the assignment. Guidance and review on methodological approach and tools utilized for data collection will be provided by Practical Action.
