In the village of Mai-i-ihii, outside of Nairobi, TOLI partners with Comet House Ministry to invest in women and young people who need a kickstart to self-sustaining businesses. Through entrepreneurship education, savings groups and microloans, these women are seeing their dreams of an income-producing business come to life.
In the rural villages of Magumoni and Karendini, Central Kenya, we partner with KCK Ministries to serve subsistence farmers, by facilitating savings groups, implementing small business education and granting microloans for small businesses.
In both sites, our local staffers walk alongside clients and invest personally in the communities, sharing the light of Christ and the hope of the Gospel all along the way.
