Productivity

By a male, 46-60 years old , in Kakamega Central, Kenya
Map of Productivity My name is Panyako and i am the husband of Nelly Panyako. Nelly dared a group known as Avalivayo women group three years ago. We had so many problems before that time as our income from farming as the main source was insufficient. We realized t hat it was due to our lack of knowledge in farming methods. In the group there is networking with other groups in Western region which does capacity building for the members and an exchange programme. This improves the farming knowledge of the members. My wife was keen enough to learn many things in farming including skills on how to keep poultry. Through the same group funds were availed to her through a merry go round. She has been able to get capital to start her business for buying and selling clothes at our local market and poultry which has become our major boost economically. Read more.
