How CITAM AthiRiver is helping businesses and startups through the annual Market Fair


Every Year CITAM AthiRiver hosts a Market Fair that seeks to afford the Church members and owners of small businesses an opportunity to showcase their products or services to the Church members. This year on the 8th of July, 85 exhibitors show cased their products to hundreds who attended the event. From the Fashion industry, Food industry, Automotives, Financial and service industry the exhibitors did all the best they could to sell their offering to potential clients. They included startups and large companies such as Bamburi, Diamond Academy, Nova pioneer,Puppet 254, Land mark motors.


Some of the exhibitions at the Market Fair held early July.

The event is not limited to CITAM members and the General Public normally has a chance to participate even as exhibitors. Prior to the event a Business Networking Breakfast was held at Maanzoni Lodge presenting an opportunity to even network.The theme this year was positioned for impact in the market place.

CITAM Athi River started in 2014  and seeks to impact the community not only through spiritual well being but also through opportunities like the Market fair that also provide a platform to the disadvantaged in the society.The fair also provided a chance for those that seek to be in business in the future to learn more from those who have been in business and benchmark on the challenges and the opportunities. Some of the exhibitors who spoke to our reporter thanked the Church for the opportunity and urged more religious organisations and coporates to adopt similar initiatives.
