The corporation also supports the development of agriculture and related industries through lending and providing managerial and technical assistance to farmers.

Ms Michuki has had a diverse professional career in which she held positions as a trade, investment, and multilateral diplomat for six years.


Prior to that, she was an entrepreneur in New York City, where she founded and managed The Highland Tea Company.

Her early career was in finance, with stints at Barclays and Merrill Lynch, during which she obtained a chartered financial analyst certification.
