The Kilimo group has established a banana nursery. They have succeeded in growing banana seedlings through a banana tissue method. From this nursery, farmers get a good supply of well-graded plants.
When the bananas are mature the farmers take their harvest to the officials of the Kilimo group and market it cooperatively. Middle men from Nairobi come to collect the bananas and pay for them. The money is deposited into the group´s account and then distributed to the members.
