Clever Women

Water as a resource is the most important in any case or use be it domestic or economical purpose. The western kenya is characterised with rains spread throughout the year but surprisingly the residents would still go without water due to the fact that they lack storage facilities. A women group came up with the idea to buy large plastic tanks and set them on a nearby market for sale at cheaper prices. The business is currently formed booming as the women reap what they worked heavily. The most important is residents have water in store for them anytime they want it.
