The smiling fellow in the striped shirt farms one acre of maize and vegetables. He also has ‘zero graze’ cattle which means he brings fodder to his cows in a pen. No land for free range. I noted we both wrote left handed and ate our lunch with our left hands as well.
The gracious lady in red has three acres. She wondered who I would leave my land to as I had no children. I asked her if she had only one daughter would she leave her land to her daughter. Yes.
Faida Mali Good Governance Seminar Kwares and Jitegemee SACCOs November 26-29, 2012
Masasa Makwassa of Faida Mali conducted two two day workshops with Kwares and Jitegemee SACCOS.
- Masasa made sure to involve both the Purchase for Progress Focal persons and the co-operative officers in these sessions. They instructed as well as Masasa
- These workshops were for the board members of each SACCOs
- There was full and active participation on the part of all
- At the start of Day 1 each person was asked to write down (anonymously) what their contribution was to the management of their co-operative and this was a superb lead in to an exploration of the roles and responsibilities of board members charged with running a business
- On Day 2 the real audited figures of each SACCOs were analysed to see just how well management was doing in relation to accepted standard business practices
- Each SACCOs could readily see their successes and where their weakness were evident they asked for further training
