Project Summary / Description:
EFK is a pioneering social enterprise located in central Kenya, committed to sustainable agribusiness development through the production of high value, renewable energy, and organic agriculture inputs. EFK has found a scalable social and environmental solution using the croton nut, an indigenous East African nut that previously had no other commercial, productive or edible use. In addition to its business operations, EFK also supports conservation efforts through its tree planting program and organic farming trainings.

Impact on Underrepresented Groups:
As a social enterprise, EFK supports both economic and gender diversity. EFK works with 6000 BoP smallholder farmers to provide additional income and to engage in sustainable farming practices that increase their farm yields. 75% of these farmers are women and youth. Additionally, EFK has a strong internal gender policy - 30% of staff are women and we have a formal gender policy to promote impartiality and gender equality.
