This pilot project was funded by International Labor Organization on the training of women groups on Get Ahead for Women in Enterprise Tool Kit. The training aimed at building capacity of women groups on business skills. The mission of this socio-economic venture project was to enhance women small scale farmers’ access to sustainable markets which enable them to increase their earnings, capture a greater share of retail prices and enhance the quality of produce. The project worked with two women groups; KIPFAT and Natumo Oloile Self Help Groups. The groups consisted of 25 people each majority of who were PLHIV (People Living with HIV). Apart from economic empowerment, the project was also meeting the nutritional needs of PLHIVs which were high and those of their families. The project linked up with Amboseli Serena Lodge and Amboseli AA Lodge who bought vegetables and fruits from the two groups. The project was set to enhance livelihoods of 50 households with an average family size of 5 members translating to approximately 250 individuals directly and indirectly. With hopes of getting more funding from donors and well wishers, APTDC dreams of weaning up the two groups and scale up this to other groups of women within the geographical area.
