Through the implementation of the project, women were provided with Mwangabora solar lanterns, and given the training to help them set up new income generating activities. Following these activities, we carried out a micro-enterprise sustainability and savings management training activities

The objectives of the workshops were to provide women with skills to manage savings and give them insights on how to pull back the savings to sustain their income generating activities and how to set up a distribution mechanism to enable the group members to benefit from their activities.

The training was done amongst three groups namely Mwamba women group, Katambe self-help group, and Umoja windows group. 90 women participated in workshops 4 workshops of 2 days each conducted between November  15th and December 16th. The workshops were done in partnership with the Kakamega county women empowerment program.

The workshops were structured as interactive where all participating members contributed to one or more items of discussion and from there, women were content that that would boost their productivity and help them use their income generating activities t boos their personal household income and at the same time keep their activities growing.

Two of the participating groups were involved in kitchen rearing while the other was involved in outside catering projects. The trainers put this in context as they discussed development challenges faced by the women, at the local level, the overall market challenges and came up with different ways they could adapt to their challenges and succeed in creating sustainable businesses at the greater market level.

The training workshops ended with trainers and SDFA-Kenya coming up with a sustainability plan for each of their income-generating activities.
