Migori women rep urges women to form groups to benefit from NGAAF Funds

Migori Woman Representative Fatuma Mohammed has given out a cheque worth Sh100,000 from the National Government Affirmative Fund (NGAAF) to support Loving sisters’ women group in Migori County.

NGAAF is a kitty under the Ministry of Public Service, Youth, and Gender Affairs that supports the socio-economic empowerment of women, youth, Persons with Disabilities, needy children, and elderly persons in the country.

It is also anchored on the Vision 2030 development blueprint under the Social Pillar to address the plight of vulnerable groups through enhanced access to financial facilities.

Fatuma, who gave out the funds to the beneficiary group in Migori town said that the funds are aimed at providing an avenue for the promotion of enterprise and value-addition initiatives.

“This fund will help women, youths, and any vulnerable groups in the Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) sector to grow their businesses gradually and be self-reliant”, noted Fatuma.

The legislator challenged women and vulnerable groups to come together and form groups and societies to apply for government funds like NGAAF and Uwezo Funds.

Palema Odhiambo, a member of the loving sisters Group that benefited from the funds urged women in the county to join groups to benefit from government funds.

She expressed her sincere appreciation to Fatuma saying that the money will enable them to grow their businesses.
