Zakayo Kimutai Ng’etich

Portfolio Manager

As portfolio manager, I analyze loan applications from our client agricultural businesses in East Africa and monitor existing loans to ensure on-track performance. I’m also responsible for developing a pipeline of new business to help Root Capital expand its impact throughout the region. After obtaining a bachelor’s degree in business management from Mount Kenya University, for the last 18 years I worked at several commercial banks in Kenya—most recently as head of agribusiness at Sidian Bank. When not in the office, I enjoy traveling and cheering on my favorite rugby teams.
