On the county's bursary, she said that so far they had been able to allocate sh. 157m to cater for students from poor background. She pointed out that priority was given to orphans since they were the most affected. 

On Kiambu Biashara Fund, youth, Women and persons living with disability have this year been allocated sh. 100m along with last year's balance of sh. 200m. 

She called upon every legible persons to apply for the same. In case anyone had difficulties accessing any of these funds, she notified them to liaise with their Ward Representatives so that they could be assisted accordingly.

She concluded by saying that she had sought the assistance of the Kiambu County Department of Trade to seek markets for the Kianjau/Kiang'ombe & Starehe women handicraft. She promised to ensure that they developed a website for the group so as to enable them access the international market.
