Women in Lusaka’s George compound say they have not accessed any empowerment funds despite having been promised by their civic leaders during the run up to the 2016 general elections.
Speaking in an interview with komboni radio news, the women have wondered why their area councilor has gone mute on the matter.
One of the Businesswomen Mwiza Mwiinga observed that coming up with soft loans for women in George compound will enable them establish and grow their businesses thereby making them self-reliant.
And another trader Elizabeth Banda also reiterated calls on the need for the civic leaders to push for empowerment programmes to enable women venture into income generating activities.
