Social Entrepreneurs have much to be admired for their persistence in creating and nurturing communities. Almost every social enterprise faces choppy waters, rejections and winding roads. Meet Runo Okiomah, 2011 winner of the Muhammad Yunus Challenge and now a successful social entrepreneur with an operation in Kenya. Her enterprise, Maa-Bara, has created a system that utilizes kitchen scraps to grow healthy fresh fish and vegetables for consumption. The Maa-Bara system increases food security by boosting the productivity of small-holder farmers allowing families to grow their own food at a quantity and quality they desire in almost any location and in places where food has never been grown before.
