Kenchic Limited has stepped forward to support Faith Murunga, a former migrant worker, in setting up her own Kenchic Kuku Shop.
Since recently returning to Kenya and sharing her experience of gross mistreatment as a domestic worker in Saudi Arabia, Faith sought out well-wishers to help her revive her Kenchic business.
Kenchic has offered to support Faith in her reintegration journey by helping her achieve her dream of setting up a Kenchic Kuku Shop.
The poultry business will create a sustainable source of livelihood for herself and her family. The Kenchic Corporate Social Responsibility team will assist Faith in covering the cost of branding the Kuku Shop along with paying one month’s rent and deposit for the shop.
Additionally, to support in kicking off the business, Kenchic will supply the shop with a weighing scale and one month’s stock worth Kes. 25,000. Kenchic will also provide basic training to Faith in financial management, book keeping business sustainability.
“I am grateful to Kenchic for taking an interest in my story and for their generous support in helping me set up my Kuku shop, which has been a dream of mine since my time working in Saudi Arabia. This business will help me get back on my feet and provide for my family,” said Faith.
“At Kenchic, we are committed to corporate social responsibility and contributing value through the initiatives we support. We were moved by Faith’s story and her determination to revive her Kenchic business and we’re honoured to be able to support her in her journey as a Kenchic Kuku shop entrepreneur,” remarked Romeo Jamoza, head of CSR at Kenchic.
As a major contributor to the regional economy, Kenchic is committed to creating sustainable value and opportunities for entrepreneurs, within the poultry industry and beyond.
