KWFT participated in the ASK South Eastern – Machakos Branch Show which was held from 28th June to 1st July 2017 at the Machakos Showground. The show was graced by over 100 exhibitors who attracted thousands of showgoers who flocked the showground making it a huge success.
KWFT was also privileged to host the Chief Guest for the official opening of the show, Machakos Governor Dr. Alfred Mutua. He was highly impressed by KWFT’s business model and products and showed a keen interest in Nyumba Smart, promising to visit one of the beneficiaries and learn more about the product.
The KWFT stand enjoyed massive traffic owing to the great display and impressive stand, which also enabled the Institution to emerge victorious in the following judging classes:
- Best Micro- Financial Institution Stand – Position 1

- Stand That Best Interprets Current Show Theme – Position 1
- Best Organization/ Association in Community Projects/Service Stand – Position 1

The KWFT staff present at the stand jubilated and celebrated the great win and were overwhelmed to be joined by 2 girls in the Capture the Future program (a program by KWFT/KWH dedicated to sponsoring needy and bright girls through school) who had attended the show with their respective schools.
It was a double win for the Institution as on top of all the awards, the Institution managed to collect great leads for business conversion.
KWFT appreciates the Agricultural Society of Kenya for organizing the successful event which has given the Institution an opportunity to position itself in the county. KWFT remains committed in serving the Nation and driving financial inclusion while offering transformative products and services.
