Agahikane Karungu Parish Group's story

It is with earnings from his 5-year-old retail business that 46-year-old Wilberforce has been able to bring an improved value and lease of life not only to his life but to that of his family.

With a supportive and enterprising wife by his side and his seven children who have embraced the virtues of diligence, the sky is the only limit for his family.
