Igembe Women Rejoice After County Government Did this Through Women Empowerment Programme

The wife to Meru Deputy Governor Titus Ntuchiu, Madam Lucy Ntuchiu accompanied by County Executive Committee members (CECMs) Dr. Eunice Nkirote Kobia of Water and Irrigation, and Linner Nkirote Kailanya of Education Gender and Social Development, as well as other County Government officials and leaders, today led the empowerment drive by Governor Kiraitu Murungi’s administration in Igembe Central under the Meru Twaweza Program which is an initiative of the County First Lady Madam Priscilla Murungi.

The team met women groups under the Program and issued them with certified maize seeds at Maili Tatu in Njia Ward, Athiru Ruujine in Athiru Ward, KK Market in Akirang'ondu Ward and Kiengu Market in Igembe East Ward.

“The maize seeds are of high variety and well suited for specific ecological zones especially in areas of perennial inadequate rains in our County, and will come in handy at this time when many people don’t have sufficient planting materials heading into the rainy season,” noted Madam Ntuchiu.

She added that Twaweza Program aims to ensure women across Meru are empowered in their economic activities including farming, as well as in financial literacy and management to enable them do profitable businesses.

The initiative will disburse up to Sh8.2 million in low interest loans to women groups in the County.
