Phase 2: Laying of the Infrastructural network (2007-2014)

This period was about mobilizing people deliberately and looking for markets unconventionally to sell products to. By the end of 2014, we had a solid network of over 200,000 Kenyans as part of FEP spread in 44 counties of Kenya and 32 diaspora destinations.

This phase took a lot of energy, time and unconventional methods to create an infrastructural network to ride on for generations to come. This is where the vision of FEP is anchored and that is what bore the Power of Many.

Let’s briefly look at the greatness of the United States of America. America is great in many ways, of interest in our context is how her visionary forefathers spent a lot of their money, time and resources to lay the road network that connects all the states. Again, in Great Britain, the founding fatheres took a long time to lay a network for roads and underground tubes that made Great Britain great. This connectedness united the entire economy thus enabling business going into generations.

Therefore, FEP by virtue of our vision, we deliberately spent time and money to create a generational future by consciously laying a foundation and delaying business that will back the generational wealth creation. The infrastructural structure created in the last seven years has been able to unite Kenyans across cultural, geographical, academic and religious barriers to create the Power of Many The creation of the infrastructure was in tandem with the mobilization of investment resources through Tier 1 to Tier 3 and climaxed in 2014 with a PPO which realized 2.4 billion from the expected 6.4 billion therefore creating a shortfall of 4 billion. This shortfall drastically affected business, for instance, due to this shortfall, the Suntec Sagana Hotel Project, now Swiss International Sagana Resort & Conference Center, stalled. However, we are now in the process of reviving it. The mobilization involved funds, leadership and opening offices to usher in the 3rd phase. This phase marked entry to corporate order.
