Women in Manufacturing Forum held
Kenya Association of Manufacturers (KAM), in partnership with UN Women, held the Women Empowerment Principles (WEPs) – Women in Manufacturing forum on 21st June 2018 themed Step Ahead: Empowering in Women in Manufacturing.

The forum aimed at increasing the participation of women in the manufacturing sector. Speaking during the forum, KAM PR, Communications and Marketing Manager, Ms. Sally Kahiu noted that there is indeed great potential for women-run industries to create productive jobs and grow value chains in the country.

KAM recognizes the importance of women in driving industrial transformation for job creation and inclusive economic growth. It is time we increase the industry’s share of female talent in the sector if we are to achieve our industrialization goal,” noted Ms. Kahiu.

The Association’s mission is to promote competitive local manufacturing within the framework of a liberalized global economy. KAM will simplify the external entrepreneurial ecosystem and government schemes eligibility criteria, by enabling ease of doing business, including easy access to credit facilities such as collateral-free loans from banks.
