Muslims urged to apply for funds

06 October 2014, 12:04 Arap Yego

Bungoma - Muslims in Bungoma County have been asked to apply for the funds availed by the national and county governments in order to change their economic fortunes.

Addressing hundreds who were gathered at Mjini grounds on Saturday for Eid Al Adha celebrations, Bungoma County Commissioner Maalim Mohamed said members of the community have no reason to be poor as there are funds they can use to start businesses.

“The Jubilee government has given Uwezo, Women Empowerment and Youth Empowerment Funds. County governments also have their funds, which you can request for and use to start income generating activities and improve your lives,” advised Mohamed.

The administrator asked the faithful to form groups so that they can receive assistance and further challenged men in the county to emulate the womenfolk by forming groups to be able to benefit from grants and loans.

“These funds are given to members of registered companies, existing businesses, associations as well as Savings and credit societies. Nobody should be left out because they do not belong to any of these groups,” advised the county commissioner.

Mohamed at the same time asked parents to be at the forefront to ensure that their children are not involved in criminal activities like drug dealings and terrorism related activities.

“We should all strive to change this negative image that has been associated with a section of our youths by some members of the public,” he said.
