Simba had the opportunity to host KNAD (Kenya North America Diaspora) SACCO on September 8, 2018. It was a privilege to be in the presence of distinguished guests Dr. Lucy McKenzie, Dr. Beverly Rota Sande and Betty Achapa. The main purpose of their meeting was to meet and great Houston Kenyan women who are eager to invest back in Kenya and cease to be spectators of the economic boom being experienced by various veteran investors. In a show of strong support for KNAD, Kenyan women made their presence known by showing up in large numbers. The hosts were overwhelmed by the number new member inquiries that were present on that day. Over fifty women showed up.
