    A treasury bill is a short term debt obligation with a maturity of one year or less, issued and fully guaranteed by the Kenyan Government, payable to the bearer. Treasury bills are sold on a discount basis so that the yield is the difference between the purchase price and the face value. Example; you may buy a treasury bill with a face value of KES 100,000 at a discounted price of KES 95,000. The yield to you is the KES 5,000 difference. T-bills offer the government short term financing.
