The new Sh20 million ($0.2 million) factory has received 74,100 garment orders so far. The aim of establishing the factory was not only to create hundreds of direct and indirect jobs, but also to retain the millions of shillings that parents in the county use to buy school uniforms from manufacturers in Nairobi and other counties, Kenyan news agency said quoting Kitui county Governor Charity Ngilu.
Around 145 electric sewing machines have been installed together with other embroidery and pressing machinery in the factory to ensure the garments meet the highest quality standards. “With estimated 486,000 students in both primary and secondary schools in the county, the factory has a ready market, and is expected to stimulate the local economy,” said Ngilu.
