Women benefit from Sacco’s sh4.1 million

By Omoro | June 8th 2015

Members of Homa Bay County Women Savings and Credit Co-operative Organisations (Sacco) have benefited from Sh4.1 million to help them engage in business activities.
The members whose majority are women got the funds out of the savings they have been making in the Sacco.
Speaking in Oyugis town during the official launch of cheques distribution, the county Women Rep Gladys Wanga, who pioneered the Sacco, said the fund will improve living standards of members.
"A woman is the foundation of the society hence I am sure the money we are giving out today will help you to sustain and expand your businesses," Wanga said.
Wanga, who is also the Homa bay county ODM Chairperson, challenged those who had not joined the Sacco to do so in order to avoid lagging behind in development.
"We started this Sacco last year because most of our women were eager to undertake business activities but they could not due to lack of capital. Let every resident of this county make use of this Sacco so that we can acquire economic prosperity like people of other regions," said Wanga.
The legislator told women to avoid politicising the Sacco activities and view it as meant to transform their lives.
She said the cheques will be distributed to members from all eight constituencies in the county.
