13 groups get sh. 1.6 million UWEZO FUND loans in Thika, others to follow in next allotment.


Thirteen groups drawn from across Thika Town Constituency yesterday received cheques worth Ksh. 1.6 million from the constituency’s UWEZO FUND kitty to expand their businesses.

The beneficiaries were drawn from those groups that had previously borrowed and successfully repaid their loans and had projects that resonated well with the government’s BIG 4 AGENDA.

While speaking during the disbursement of these cheques, area MP Eng. Patrick Wainaina said that the groups received amounts ranging from Ksh. 100,000 and Ksh. 200,000.

He encouraged each of the groups to think around President Uhuru Kenyatta’s BIG 4 AGENDA as this would guarantee them more opportunities for growth and expansion.

Before the disbursement of these loans, the participants underwent a rigorous training in financial management, value addition and on the UWEZO FUND policies and procedures in order to equip them fully on what was ahead of them.
