Also, India disbursed Sh 10 billion loans to mechanize agriculture in the country something which will also see the Eldoret based firm benefit.

India had earlier given the company new machines which were to be used in the modernization process.

According to the Rivatex Managing Director Prof Thomas Kipkurgat, the machines would play a key role in improving the production from the initial 5,000 meters to 40,000 meters.

The company opened in the year 1975 and has faced several challenged among them being mismanagement which saw the company being on receivership in 1990.
