On Friday, November 18th, Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua said he expects women to get up 70% of the Hustlers fund.
Gachagua said that 50% of the Hutlser Fund would be set aside for women while speaking at a meeting with officials of United Nations (UN) agencies in Kenya.
He also noted that Kenyan women are naturally hardworking and entrepreneurial, making them capable of accessing as much as 70% of the money.
Half of Hustler’s money is set aside just for Kenyan women. Even if money wasn’t set aside for anything specific, “they’d still get about 70% of it,” his remarks.
According to the DP, loans will be repaid on time since Kenyan women have always shown strong business morals.
The DP also urged foreign partners to chip in so that the fund and the broader “Bottom-up” economic paradigm may continue to thrive.
As pledged during the campaign, he also reiterated President William Ruto’s goal to strengthen micro, small, and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs).
