Unlocking Possibilities

For Inclusive & Sustainable Development

We support viable ventures in the Lake region to access to financial technical and commercial resources to enable them to succeed.

Ohala Kenya connects local businesses, cooperatives and communities to the financial, technical and commercial resources they need to grow and prosper. We also support investors to navigate past political, cultural and other risks and potential barriers to doing business in the region.

To achieve this, we offer tailored training, advice and facilitation services intended to bridge the gaps between resource providers and those who need the resources.

We are committed to learning through ongoing research and through our Ohala Farms project, a youth-led, smart agriculture learning program located in a 16.5 acre farm in Siaya County. The project seeks to expand practical, agronomic skills and business knowledge as fundamental components of Ohala’s contribution to the Lake Region’s development..

Ohala Kenya is registered as a company limited by guarantee in Kenya. It is independent, impartial and not tied to any special interests. We strive in all our efforts to demonstrate entrepreneurship in the public interest while upholding the highest standards of governance.
