Empowering Women through COL's L3F Programme

Through COL’s Lifelong Learning for Farmers programme (L3F) in Kenya, Immaculate Ouma received training in poultry keeping and management.  Within two months, she applied for a business start-up loan offered by a community banking cooperative.  She used the loan to start a business with 200 birds.  And, even though she’s never been to a classroom, she is now a thriving entrepreneur who contributes to her family’s income.
