On October 16 and 17, Rowan Emslie and Enrique Costoya, two fellows at TaroWorks, visited our Nanyuki office and then traveled to a field site at Archer’s Post, where they met with members of a BOMA savings group and BOMA Village Mentor Boniface Leliko.

TaroWorks is a suite of mobile technology tools primarily designed for field staff working in remote areas. It’s built on the Salesforce platform and accessed in the field via Android devices.

Through this new digital technology, BOMA can upload data from the field and provide real-time feedback for the monitoring and support of our BOMA businesses, savings groups, and Mentors. The tablets were funded by a generous grant from Boeing.
