Old Mutual Story
Doing great things with a family business

Daniel Odhiambo is doing great things with his family business, Zaritex Knitwear. Since 2009 it has grown from one knitting machine to 12, and it now provides jobs for 30 people. We have been working with him since he came to Faulu, our Kenyan microfinance bank, to help him buy an embroidery machine. Doing this work in-house has given him better control of quality and timing. The business is thriving: Daniel now has two embroidery machines and he is talking to us about finance for a sock-knitting machine.
