Kenya is located in East Africa and gained independence in 1963.
Although Kenya is the regional hub for trade and finance in East Africa, poor
economic practices have limited Kenya's growth. The Kenyan people tend to
depend on the missionary and western funds very heavily. Of the 43 million
people who live in Kenya, 45% claim to be Protestant (mainly a works-based
salvation), 33% are Roman Catholic, 10% are Muslim, and 10% indigenous beliefs.
The official language is Swahili and $1.00 US = 84.15 Kenyan shillings.
