Kaloleni sub county Youth Development Officer Festus Matee has urged the beneficiaries of the Uwezo Fund to promptly repay their loans to enable other groups benefit.
Matee noted that from the Ksh23, 255,000 issued to 192 Women, Youth and persons with disability groups in Kaloleni Sub County, only Ksh7,234,060 has been repaid.
“That translates to 31 per cent repayment rate,” he stated, revealing further that the Fund loans should empower groups to carry out their daily activities more efficiently and effectively.
Out of the 192 beneficiary groups, 134 are women groups, 56 are youth groups while 2 groups belong to persons with disability.
He advised the groups to use the funds received for the intended purposes only.
