A loan of $4,000 helped a member buy Nutriflour in bulk for sale to the community.

Chanuka Support Group's story

The Chanuka support group was formed on 1st May 2005 with six founder members: Janet O. Achola, Samuel O. N., Selline J. O., Hyrene A. O., Lucas A. Odera, and Clarice O. Oluoch. The founding members came together to address issues that were affecting their lives.
They came together with the aim of assisting each other and also contributing money to pay for the group members' transportation to attend clinical services at Chulaimbo Rural Health Centre.

With time, more members joined the group. The group currently has 45 registered members although only 40 are active. The members have also been trained by K-MET in Nutrition Support, Home Based Care services, and IGA (income generating activity) Management. The group is run by the Executive which is comprised of the Chairperson, Secretary, Assistant Secretary, Organizing Secretary, and the Treasurer. Those who are willing to join the group are required to meet certain conditions including paying a registration fee. Members are involved in well-established income generating activities such as poultry keeping, dairy farming, cereal businesses, vegetable sales, and community pharmacies. Since HIV/Aids is a concern in this area and nutrition supplements have played a role in HIV/Aids management, the group has applied for US $4000 from K-MET to enable them to buy Nutriflour in bulk and sell it to the community.
