The Youth fund participated at the just concluded Kisumu ASK Show held from 26th -30th July 2016 in Kisumu County. The theme for the Agricultural show was “Enhancing Technology in Agriculture & Industry for Food Security and National Growth”

The Youth Fund facilitated six youth entrepreneurs to showcase their products and services at the trade fair that attracted hundreds of investors and business community within and without the County. The forum also provided them with a social and business networking platform to interact and share ideas with business experts. It exposed them to other government agencies that were participating including the County Government of Kisumu.

Products and services showcased by the youth entrepreneurs included African wars (Khangas,& dresses), Neem value added products such as soaps, lotions, medicines, Artwork, Jewelry made out of recycled wastes, and African sandals.

Youth Fund officers took the opportunity to interact with the public by answering queries responding to concerns and disseminating information with a view to improve on service delivery. Members of the public especially the youth who visited the stand got firsthand information about the Fund and learnt more about loan products and service. They were also sensitized on how to benefit from the affirmative action on AGPO.
