A project that was to help women groups in range lands to provide food for their families while making some money is near collapse, forcing the government to intervene to rescue it.
The agencies overseeing the nutribusiness project, started in 1992, claim erratic weather, poor leadership and interference from the government were stunting progress on the bid to equip women groups with skills for increasing household income, nutrition levels and food security.
The first project was started in Bomet and was replicated in Makueni (1997), Murang’a (1997) and in Mbeere (2000). Every project was equipped with Sh5 million worth of machinery.
