When we arrive at Marianne Centre in Limuru, a massive greenhouse beholds our site. It’s a couple of meters from the Centre’s classrooms. The young men and women are busy cleaning their premises.

Marianne centre is an institution that was started in 2010 by 5 members of the community for purposes of training and teaching young boys and girls who were physically and mentally challenged. This group of individuals is many times discriminated by society. The centre has 47 learners at the moment.

The Centre  relies on good will from society to cater for their  needs. After years of totally depending on well wishers, they thought of starting a business venture that would supplement their donations and help them become independent at some point.

One of the directors heard about Akiba Mashinani Trust from a friend who has benefitted from the organization. With this, they approached the field officer in charge of Limuru area. The officer trained them and they quickly agreed to take a loan with AMT.

They applied for a loan worth Ksh. 600,000 which was approved after presenting their business plan. The centre decided to put up a Greenhouse and plant tomatoes for both domestic and commercial use. They planted 800 seedlings and are now awaiting their big harvest.

The livelihood loan from AMT has changed their lives.

“Thank you Akiba Mashinani Trust for helping us. We are expecting a huge harvest soon,” said Mercy, head teacher at Marianne Centre happily.

“The money we get from selling the tomatoes, we shall use it for improving our classrooms and save some for another loan,” Mercy adds
