Uasin Gichu Governor Praises Enterprising Kesses Village Elders

Olendu Elders Cooperative Society, which includes village elders from Kesses Sub County, approached Uasin Gichu County Governor with a proposal to establish a sawmilling facility.

In 2016, the elders obtained a loan of Sh2.5 million from the County Enterprise Development Fund, and the wheels of justice began to turn.

Since then, the Elders’ Cooperative Society has expanded from a sawmilling enterprise to include an Agro Vet shop, a Tree Nursery, and environmental preservation to replace the trees used as raw materials in their contemporary sawmill.
