Gachagua has said that these should be the people applying for the loans, and not rich people, some of whom are from prominent families.
He says that the rich people, a number of whom are criticizing him, Ruto and the government, should give the fund a wide berth and not even talk about it.
He adds that these people can get loans from banks using their vehicle and land documents and should not be again fighting for the Hustler Fund with poor people who have nothing to give as collateral.
"Those who are not hustlers, leave this fund alone. You will see them on TV tonight discussing this fund including those who said the fund would be impossible to come up with," he said on Wednesday.
He also lashed out at those who have been mocking the fund and the amount it's offering, mostly members of the Raila Odinga-led opposition.
Gachagua pointed out that while the money being offered by the kitty might be little to these critics, it will mean a lot to the millions of Kenyans in need.
"What they must know and they don't know is they might think that Sh500to Sh50,000 is little money. It is little money to them not to millions of Kenyans," the Second in Command is quoted by The Star.
