Empowering rural prosperity: Juhudi Kilimo’s dynamic journey with Google Workspace and Incentro

Juhudi Kilimo is a microfinance institution dedicated to improving the livelihoods of rural smallholder farmers and micro-entrepreneurs. Juhudi’s mission revolves around providing wealth-creating financial solutions that improve the livelihoods of their clients. Some of the products they offer are farm equipment and farm input loans, animal farming loans, micro-housing loans, check-off loans amongst others. In addition to the financial services they offer, they also provide non-financial services such as training interventions, social and environmental management.

Partnership with Incentro

Juhudi Kilimo enthusiastically embraced the opportunity to enhance operational efficiency in the dynamic technological landscape through a robust collaboration platform. Recognizing the potential of Google Workspace, a versatile suite of cloud-based collaboration tools, Juhudi Kilimo adopted it to transform and redefine its operations. The goal was to fully maximize its capabilities to propel the organization toward greater collaboration, productivity, and success. Having previously identified Google Workspace as the tool of choice to achieve this goal - the next step in their digital transformation was to expand its uses and train administrators on how to achieve the most out of this solution. In came Incentro. 

Change management and training

Training plays a crucial role in maximizing the benefits of any digital platform, and Google Workspace is no exception. For Juhudi Kilimo, investing in training for their administrators was a strategic move to ensure they could fully leverage the suite's capabilities and explore opportunities for additional enhancements.

In collaboration with Incentro, Juhudi Kilimo designed a comprehensive training program tailored to their administrators' specific needs and goals. The training sessions were designed to provide hands-on experience and practical insights into the various features and functionalities of Google Workspace, empowering administrators to become proficient users and effective champions of the platform within their organization.

Through a combination of workshops, demonstrations and interactive sessions, administrators gained a deeper understanding of how to optimize their use of Google Workspace to streamline workflows, enhance collaboration and drive productivity through Google Meet, Google Drive and other tools. They also had the opportunity to explore additional tools and functionalities that they may not have been fully utilizing before, uncovering new possibilities for innovation and efficiency.

By investing in training, Juhudi Kilimo demonstrated their commitment to continuous improvement and innovation, empowering their administrators with the knowledge and skills needed to unlock the full potential of Google Workspace. This proactive approach not only benefited the organization but also paved the way for future growth and success in its digital transformation journey.
