On 18 January 2018 Thomson Reuters Foundation reported:
Widow Ahatho Turuga lost 20 of her goats to drought early last year, but the shopkeeper is planning to reinvest in her herd once she has saved enough money. ... Turuga is finding it easier to cope since taking part in a rural entrepreneurship programme run by The BOMA Project, a non-profit helping women in Kenya's dry northern areas beat extreme poverty and adapt to climate change. The U.S. and Kenya-based organization provides two years of business and life-skills training, as well as mentorship. Groups of three women are each given a start-up grant of 20,000 Kenyan shillings ($194.55) and a progress grant of 10,000 shillings to set up a business. After graduating, they carry on operating their businesses -- mainly small shops selling groceries and household goods -- either together or on their own.
