Orkina Olepo Group

This group of 15 members was started in 2014 with the aim of pooling together their resources and strength to better their financial wellbeing. Among the activities that the group engage in, includes buying cows, fattening them and later selling them at higher prices as a way of income creation.

The women in the group also practice beadwork but only get to sell their products in the local markets to which they are constrained by a number of factors including lack of knowledge on the existence of large market platforms and limited financial capability as well. The members have also tried contributing Ksh 5,000 each to practice Crop farming only to be disappointed by the consistent loss of their investment to ‘ambiguous’ crop diseases which saw them lose their tomatoes produce two seasons in a row. Accessing finances in terms of loans has proven to be a futile trial as well for this group since they have had Ksh 400,000 embezzled from them by a local scam SACCO in a case which is still on going in the law court.

Besides all these challenges, it is inspiring to see these 15 strong willed spirits continue to soldier on hoping for better days when they will see their dream of eradicating poverty among themselves realised.
