Sonko has said the Kariokor Common Leather facility will make a great stride towards realizing Kenya’s Vision 2030, the country’s economic development blueprint that aims to transform Kenya into a middle-income country.

“This will go a long way in production of good quality shoes that meet international standards. The facility is expected to have an average annual production growth from the current two million shoes to 10 million shoes. This will increase traders’ annual income to more than Sh1 billion annually by the year 2022,” said Sonko.
