The Exim Bank of India will provide a soft loan to the government for the project, whose planning is already underway.

It will be implemented by the Kerio Valley Development Authority (KVDA) for the government.

India's High Commissioner Yageshwar Varma visited the site of the project and met with officials from KVDA to discuss the implementation.

"We are working on the finer details and our experts have already received a report on the project which they are assessing before we sign the contract for the project," Varma said in Eldoret town on Saturday.
