Second Year Scholar Works to Improve Local Economy

Second year scholar, Brian Kilonzi, is working with his community to raise and sell aloe vera and sisal to improve the local economy. The aloe vera is almost ready for harvest and members are ready to learn to process products such as soap and medicines.

Table banking (2)Also as part of the community project, members have started an informal bank (called table banking) due to the far distance of the standard banks.

Brian says, “Currently our Table Banking has been a great success and its like we’ve brought a bank close home for the community with the view that the nearest bank is approximately 20km away. The area Chief commended PATHWAYS for the good work and for becoming a bridge for the people to their better life and destiny.”
