Like most women in the Maasai community in Kenya, Elizabeth Talash Naikoni is up at dawn to milk her cows. The cooperative has grown to more than 3,200 active members and has quadrupled its sales in the last year alone. Elizabeth has increased her income from milk and opened a bank account for the first time, thanks to business and farming training provided by TechnoServe. With her new income, she was able to build a modern iron-sheet house and three solar lanterns that allow her grandchildren to study at night.
