The group also have 38 layers and 12 cocks to jumpstart their expansion of their agribusiness venture.
Kipruto said he was hopeful that the beneficiaries will utilize the machine to reap maximum results.
“Agribusiness is a great venture that youth should embrace and focus on it to liberate themselves from poverty,” said Mr. Kipruto.
Group coordinator Ronald Chirchir said the donations were timely since the group has been struggling with financial challenges during the pandemic.
“We are well equipped to do business and navigate into a better future,” said Chirchir.
