Our Focus Areas

The reason KMT focuses on these sectors is because they have an impact on a huge part of Kenya’s population. Therefore any positive change within them affects the lives of millions of Kenyans.

Agri-inputs

KMT’s vision is to transform small holder agriculture in Kenya from subsistence to successful agri-businesses through effective and timely use of agricultural inputs.

Water

KMT aims to transform the Kenyan water service delivery sector in collaboration with key stakeholders, by systematically addressing key constraints hindering access to quality, reliable and affordable water services by unserved and under-served populations.

Livestock

KMT is working to unlock latent potential across the entire livestock market system in order to optimise the value of the national herd and align the value chain to meet the needs of domestic and export consumers.
