Kenya and Ethiopia: Mombasa-Nairobi-Addis Ababa Road Corridor #IntegrateAfrica

Project name: The Mombasa-Nairobi-Addis Ababa Road Corridor Project


Objective(s):

  • Promote trade and regional integration between Ethiopia and Kenya by improving transport communications between the two countries.

Beneficiaries

During the rainy season, it would take over a week for vegetables to be delivered, causing them to spoil. We lost a lot of money. Thanks to the new road, we get the vegetables delivered within one day.
