We Got A New Beginning

Shivagala youth group in Kakamega north district is a vibrant organisation in the campaign to give the youth a breathing space. My husband Jason Inzorera who is the treasurer to this group can attest to the success and gain he and his family including myself and our children have got. The group started in 1989 majoring in activities such as paultry keeping, sugarcane growing and others. They have table banking through through while the elerate members economic status as it was with the case of our family. My husband's state has been improved through loans he received. The first time he get such a loan was in 1999. He started hiring camel and growing of crops like maize and sugarcane. This has enabled us to buy many animals cows especially.
