Huairou Commission Building on women
Huairou commission has continued to partner with Polycom development in its resilient project of empowering women across the globe. In Kibera, most of the women are involved in small scale business and most lack capital to escalate their business into a fully-fledged business that can stand on its own. In this regard, 10 organized women groups from the slum were each given a small token that would enable their business go to a greater level. We hope this project continues for more women in Kibera community to benefit.
One of the women who sells vegetables in a broken wooden set up was purchased for a metal stand that can enable her have more vegetables neatly arranged in a neat stack. This she has confirmed has improved her business immensely.
She thanks Huairou commission and Polycom greatly.
