After consistent pushing and razor-sharp focus, our efforts as the people of Samburu West are finally bearing fruits. Hon. Naisula Lesuuda is glad that Samburu County now has got a Youth Fund officer. Despite the process being painfully slow, 14 youth’s groups have successfully received Ksh 1.1 million from the fund last week and 20 other groups are on the approval stage awaiting disbursement.
Youth Fund is one of the leading plans of Vision 2030, under the social pillar. Its planned attention is on enterprise increase as a crucial approach that will raise trade and industry openings for, and participation by Kenyan Youth in building the country.
The Youth Fund strive in generating job opportunities for youths through entrepreneurship and inspiring them to be job creators and not job seekers. Currently, the county is attaining this by offering easy and accessible financial and business improvement support services to youth who are keen on setting-up or growing their own businesses.
Hon. Lesuuda prayer is that the training and follow-ups will encourage the youths in Samburu West to grow their businesses and repay their loans so that others will also benefit from the fund.
The Samburu West MP would like to thank Ronnie Osumba once again for his support. “we can attest to seeing your promise coming through for Samburu Count”, she said.
Finally, Hon. Lesuuda has urged the youths in Samburu West not to give up during the application process since the target is at least Ksh 5M in Youth Fund disbursements.
