This region is the bread basket of Kenya and predominately a farming region where maize, wheat farming and ranching take place on a large scale. Its location and proximity to Ugands, Sudan and other central African countries is an added advantage in addition the modern Eldoret International airport and medical facilities such as Moi University in the region and The Moi Teaching and Refferal Hospital are a testimony to this.
