Our entrepreneur in the African Textile sector, Timothy Murithi, CEO of Seritex company from Kenya has been doing an amazing job with his business since the TEF Forum.
He has been able to train 10 more staff from youth groups and women groups on the importance of rearing silkworms and planting of mulberry trees. He has since increased the production capacity of his company by 2%. The company now has two rearing houses each with a capacity of 100,000 silkworms.
The seed capital has been of great use as Timothy has now turned one of the rearing houses into an office furnished with equipment necessary for operations.
