Kevin Irungu

Kevin is the tea and coffee sector head in food and agriculture banking at Equity Bank

His passion for this sector stems from his childhood, growing up in a tea and coffee producing area in Murang’a, Kenya. The income from monthly tea payments and annual tea bonuses from his parents’ tea bushes paid his fees through secondary school and university. Thereafter this passion morphed into a career path spanning over 12 years, where he has worked in leading financial institutions to support their tea and coffee portfolios. Kelvin holds a degree in BCOM from Strathmore University.
