The BBS/Activate Action microbusiness incubator collaboration stands as a testament to the transformative power of entrepreneurship in addressing socio-economic disparities. With poverty levels soaring at 77.9% in Homa Bay County, compared to the national average of 52%, the need for innovative solutions has never been more pressing.

The microbusiness incubator in Homa Bay is not merely a band-aid solution to poverty but a strategic intervention addressing systemic challenges. By equipping women with the tools, resources, and support needed to start and sustain their own businesses, it is fostering a culture of self-reliance and resilience within the community. Moreover, by focusing on women, who are often disproportionately affected by poverty, it is catalysing broader social and economic development, paving the way for a more equitable society.

As we celebrate the successes outlined in this impact report, we also recognize the work that lies ahead. With poverty still rampant and challenges persisting, the microbusiness incubator remains steadfast in its commitment to empowering women and transforming lives. By expanding its reach, enhancing its programs, and forging strategic partnerships, it aims to create a ripple effect of change that reverberates across generations.

As we look towards the future, let us continue to support initiatives that prioritize empowerment, inclusion, and progress for all.
