At Nyala Dairy in Kenya, milk means profits for thousands of small-scale dairy farmers who supply the cooling plant. In addition to providing a market for producers, the plant also operates as a business hub, offering farmers services including access to finance, agricultural inputs and health care. Since TechnoServe helped farmers open Nyala Dairy in 2002, the plant has given life to the town of Ndaragwa and created opportunities for thousands of dairy farmers.
