A new day brings a flurry of activity at Nyala Dairy in Ndaragwa, Kenya. Farmers can sell their milk at the cooling plant, which bulks and chills it, then sells it to large urban processors. The plant also offers farmers services such as 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.
