About Us


Rwathia Distributors: An economic empire in Kenya established by a small network of Savings Groups. 

When two vegetable hawkers moved to Nairobi in the 1930s, they founded a network of SGs to support labor migrants from their village; the association now controls nearly 20% of the national economy.
