We are delighted to welcome John Mbwaya to our leadership team in Kenya as our field supervisor. John is also our Kenya Community Based Organization’s Board Secretary and a retired school teacher. One of his responsibilities is to regularly visit all of our women who receive money for income-generating projects to mentor them and offer assistance if necessary. With his motorbike, he can reach every woman’s home and maintain a log of their progress. John will also attend the women’s monthly support group meeting and reinforce the financial training they received in April. Offering this consistent mentorship is shown by research to be a key factor in successful microfinance programs like ours.
