Making uwezo fund more responsive to youth and women issues.

In the next few weeks, the first batch of youth and women are set to
receive cash from the uwezo fund. The very fact that President
Kenyatta is the patron of the Uwezo fund underscores just how much he
has taken personal responsibility to ensure that the uwezo fund is a
success. However, there are many things that must be done to ensure
that the fund is successful. The first is to ensure that the correct
winners are picked. Studies show that the success of a business
venture depends more on the abilities of the entrepreneur than on the
business idea itself. To this end, more training of the entrepreneurs
will have to be taken into account. This will be especially crucial as
the start ups and new businesses will need proper business records as
they transition to the next stage of growth and funding cycle.
Otherwise, if important steps are not taken, the Uwezo fund could be
akin to throwing too much mud on the wall and none of it ends up
sticking- which would in deed be regretable.
