From college courses to cultivating local agribusiness in Kenya

By: PBS.org


What was your college dream? It may not have been the creation of a potato farming business in Kenya. But for D'Amore-McKim School of Business alum Michael Behan, it was a natural progression from his classwork and involvement with the Social Enterprise Institute. Behan has created Njabini Inc., both an apparel company based out of Kenya and an agricultural business model that helps farmers in Kenya create a sustainable living model. 

"[The Social Enterprise Institute] allowed me to put a lot of time and effort into this organization. And a lot of what I learned in the program I was able to transfer into what we were doing in Kenya," says Behan.
