The 28-member Mbini self-help group (SHG) in Machakos farms a 4-acre plot where they grow oranges, avocado, vegetables, maize. The group members also have their own plots, do bee keeping, baking of cakes, and rear goats, cattle and chickens. Their challenges are lacking capital to expand and pump water, lacking insurance and storage facilities for their produce.
