Summary

The micro supa-market initiative not only ensures continuous food provision to families, but also builds their economic capacity through weekly savings which belong to the beneficiary. Advisably, members are encouraged to invest their savings in other essential commodities and business ventures of their choice. Payment to this food loan is in installments for 2 months. A member is charged 10% Administration fee, which helps in sustaining the project. 1500 household are now direct beneficiaries.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Kibera is the largest slum in Africa having 70% people who are poor and living on under one dollar per day. Women depend on casual work they do to make ends barely meet while other responsibilities are waiting too. Due to the economic hurdles crippling families, having nutritious meals is a problem. Kccn came up with solution of cutting across by giving essential food ratio to these families and hence pay back in installments. 500 households are now direct beneficiaries of the programme.

How will this project solve this problem?

Food is a basic need in one's life. Provision of enough food throughout the season for the families already in the program is great relief. They can have effective planning with whatever small income they earn on food and other essentials. Expansion of the micro-supa market with enough stock will enable the organization to reach more people and hence increase enrollment of children in school due to having food and decrease domestic violence in homes and thus improve their livelihoods.

Potential Long Term Impact

We are anticipating to reach 2000 households in the next 2 years. More women, elderly and people with disabilities will be enrolled to be beneficiaries. We will also introduce the programme to other slum areas in Nairobi and outside and also Institutions.
