Ainabkoi Member of parliament aspirant Terry Chebet Maina has supported 10 widows to register self-help groups (S.H.G).

She says this will ensure that women are empowered financially.

“Today  I have supported 10 widows from Ainabkoi constituency, these women have been going through a lot in making ends meet, my aim is  to ensure that widows are empowered for them to be independent,” said the Ainabkoi member of parliament aspirant.

She called on women across the country to join groups for them to get financial support from both the County and National government.

“The government of Kenya requires each group to register a S.H.G in order to benefit from Uwezo and Women Enterprise funds, I, therefore, urge women across the country to register in groups since this is the only way that will ensure that they are empowered financially. Empowering a woman is empowering the entire society,” said Maina while speaking to the press.

Terry has declared her interest in the Ainabkoi Parliamentary seat where she says she is fit to replace the incumbent William Chepkut who is serving his first term in office.

She says her motivation for running for the position of Member of Parliament is to give back to society by providing leadership.
“I want to give back the leadership skills and the competence I have acquired over the years to my Community at the grassroots level.

I see a lot of challenges that our people face and I believe that the National Assembly is the right platform to bring in legislation and provide leadership that will benefit the electorate,” Terry said.
Terry was born and raised at Dry’s Farm, Ainabkoi, and is married to Eng. Wilson Maina of Olare, Burnt Forest, Ainabkoi.

She is a mother of 3 adult children and a leader with many years of experience. She retired early from a Senior Management role in the banking sector to engage in volunteerism for social impact.

She has been a member of the Board of Directors at NSSF, AFFA, KICC, University of Eldoret, ACT!, and is currently the National Chairman for the Kenya Girl Guides Association. She seeks to become a Member of the National Assembly for Ainabkoi so that she can give back her experience, competence, and commitment for the good of society.

She believes in transformative servant leadership to create sustainable social impact and economic empowerment among our people.
