Inspiring Story of Young Kenyan Entrepreneur, Eric Muthomi Flourishing in Banana Flour Business

In Kenya Eric Muthomi is one of those young entrepreneurs who innovate. He is the founder of “Stawi Fund and Fruits”, a start-up that provides bananas from small-scale farmers in rural Kenya.

Once the bananas are brought from the remotest corners of the country, the company takes care of the manufacture of banana flour. A flour that can be used for many foods. The word “Stawi” means prosperity in Swahili. For Eric Muthomi, it means prosperity in healthy eating, prosperity for farmers and prosperity for business.

The young entrepreneur has a law degree from the Catholic University of East Africa. He also received training on the banana industry at the Kenya Industrial Research and Development Institute.


His company therefore meets several expectations in the field. Beyond the provision of banana flour, it is the quality of the final product that is involved. Eric Muthomi therefore guarantees reliability and absolute property in the entire process of transformation and also the final product. That said, potential customers are sure to better protect their body and keep it healthy.

Apart from that, it’s a serious push for agricultural production. Faced with various difficulties including distance that does not guarantee loyal customers, producers find in stawi Fund and Fruits a sigh of relief. Hence, its success among other competitors who evolve in other countries of the sub-region.
