The specific objectives were to, establish the effect of collateral on credit financing to the tourism sector by Kenyan financial institutions, to determine the effect of loan pricing by financial institutions to the tourism sector to, determine the extent that risk profile of the hotel influences credit financing by financial institutions in Kenya, and, to examine the effect of performance of the business on credit financing by financial institutions to the tourism sector.
