Economic Empowerment Through Self Help Groups

With financial inclusion emerging as a major policy objective in the Kenya, self help groups (SHGs) are playing a pivotal role to extend financial services to large sections of the population. SHGs not only empower communities but they also help alleviate poverty.

They do this by allowing people to save and contribute money on a regular basis, the members can then take low-interest/interest free loans which they can use to undertake self-employment activities or to venture into businesses without depending on money-lenders who demand exorbitant interest rates.
