About My Blog

Welcome to my blog – Jambo Nairobi!  This blog documented my first experiences in East and Southern Africa, from August 2011 to September 2012. After graduating from Ohio Wesleyan University in 2011 with a B.A. in Economics and Philosophy, through an alumni connection I boarded a flight to Kenya and spent a year with Maono Initiative, a Nairobi-based microfinance institution. I fell in love with the country, caught the Africa bug, and am currently a Senior Analyst at MicroFinanza Rating, a microfinance rating agency with a regional office in Nairobi.

Feel free to share my blog with anyone who would find it entertaining. For those wishing to contact me, my e-mail is benwallingford7@gmail.com.
