Economy of Gatundu North
Gatundu North Constituency comprises four Markets; Kamwangi, Gatukuyu, Kairi and Makwa. Kamwangi market and Gatukuyu market have dominated the rest of the Markets since Independence due to skewed distribution of resources and poor Infrastructure. As of October 2019 Kairi Market and Makwa market remain dormant. The main economic activity is agriculture, poultry farming and livestock. World Bank's FAO, National Agriculture and Rural Inclusive Growth Project NARIGP have shown willingness and commitment to support Banana farming which is the main lifeline of the majority of constituents. Most of these farmers are poorly funded. Coffee sector in this area has also deteriorated in years to unsustainable levels.
