In March 2021, we published the results from a survey conducted in Molo, Nakuru county. This survey sought to establish the impact of the table banking project on the livelihoods of members of Amani women group.

The findings from this study provide useful lessons to HR&S. The study is significant to HR&S as it highlights the essence of investing in self-help groups and how such groups enhance socio-economic empowerment. Also, HR&S will gain more knowledge on table banking. The study will thus emphasize how effective the table banking concept has realized the objectives of both Amani women group and HR&S.

The survey singled out financing members of Amani women group to have the highest influence on their empowerment. This is spelled out as the primary motivation for people to join table banking groups. This document offers recommendations on how members of the Amani women’s group can enhance their socioeconomic status by improving their existing income-generating activities in order to meet their household’s expenses. However, adequate financial assistance, as well as skill and management training, are required to implement these recommendations.

Recommendations

  • Trainings for the Amani women’s group should be offered, focusing on specific topics that would benefit the group’s members. Some members stated that they had not received training since the initiative began. Amani women group members should meet more frequently.
  • Amani women’s group capital should be increased in order to increase members’ borrowing capacity, allowing them to participate in more meaningful ventures.
