Our Identity

Chatthe Group

The Chatthe family is one of the large scale farmers that have been cultivating sugarcane in the Kibos area in Kisumu (Miwani) for the past 100 years. As they own and operate their own sugarcane farms and transport business, they expanded their operations and vertically integrated their own and neighbouring sugar growing operations in the area by establishing Kibos Sugar and Allied Industries Ltd (KSAIL), on the 1st of September 1999.  KSAIL has grown tremendously since the sugar mill was commissioned in 2007.  Major industries have been developed which are now operating under the Chatthe Group.

What Beneficiaries Say

"I applaud KSAIL for the excellent work. I don't sleep hungry anymore because I get money in two weeks and I feel good about it. I now want you to build a big factory near my area. I am happy and so are all the old, the young men and even the widows who bring their cane to this facility."
John Namai
Farmer Buchenya
"The coming of KSAIL to my area has helped us. Many farmers are happy because they are now able to take their children to school as their payment comes on time. We thank you and pray for you that you will continue to help by extending more technical support like access to fertilizer in future."
Wilberforce Musungu
Largescale farmer Shinamweli
"My parents were unable to educate me so I became a farmer. Ever since I started working with KSAIL, I receive my payment on time and enjoyed their services. I get an 85% return on investment which has gotten me from where I was up to where I am now. The building of weighbridges closer to us have also increased income due to reduced transport costs."
