Governor William Kabogo has said the Kiambu County Youth Biashara Fund Act will be amended to include women. Speaking to women groups in Ngoingwa, Thika today, Kabogo said women also need their own fund for self-development adding that Sh300 million have already been set aside for the purpose. 
"Biashara Fund has been very successful since its launch last year and we have seen that youths have been able to utilise it well. This is why we want to extend the fund to women groups," said Kabogo. 
He said women will be allowed to take soft loans for income generating activities to be able to enjoy financial independence. 
"This will help you complement what you have been getting from the national government's Women and Uwezo Fund and without doubt, no woman will go begging for money from anybody," he said. 
The governor asked the women to tap in the entrepreneurial ideas being flown around free of charge in various forums including the media during this Global Entrepreneurship Summit weekend.
