GOOD AFTERNOON...

IT IS WITH IMMENSE PLEASURE THAT I STAND BEFORE YOU ON THIS OCCASION. WE NOTE THAT INDEED THE FUND HAS COME A LONG WAY IN SUPPORTING WOMEN IN THE WHOLE COUNTRY. TODAY MARKS A NEW BEGINNING AS THE FUND LOOKS ON TO THE FUTURE THROUGH THE REVIEW OF ITS STRATEGIC PLAN.

THE SUCCESS OF THE FUND IN ACHIEVING WOMEN EMPOWERMENT IS PLAINLY VISIBLE.

IN THE LAST 8 YEARS THE GROWTH OF THE NUMBER OF BENEFICIARIES IMPACTED BY THE FUND FROM A FEW HUNDRED IN THE ONSET TO 1,049,350 WITH DISBURSEMENTS OF KSHS. 6.14 BILLION THROUGHOUT KENYA IS NOT A MEAN FEAT.

IN THE CURRENT FINANCIAL YEAR, THE FUND HAS BEEN ALLOCATED EXCHEQUER FUNDING OF KSH.169 MILLION. THE JUBILEE GOVERNMENT IS COMMITTED TO INCREASING THE EXCHEQUER SUPPORT GIVEN RELEVANT JUSTIFICATION BY THE FUND

WE RECOGNIZE THE ROLE OF THE CABINET SECRETARY TOWARDS ACHIEVING WOMEN EMPOWEREMENT BY SUPPORTING THE FUND’S INITIATIVES. WE THANK OUR KENYAN WOMEN FOR THEIR EFFORT IN LOAN UPTAKE AND REPAYMENT AND CALL FOR AN INCREASE IN THE NUMBERS OF WOMEN ACCESSING THE FUNDS.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
