Nicodemus Siayi commented on Empowering A Girl is Women’s Economic Empowering (EGWEE)

Great leaders must think of Women as without them;they would not exist as either great or not.


Nicodemus Siayi commented on The Financial Inclusion and aging in Developing world

Hi Nicole,WE completely differ.I one time visited Swiss and see how the social welfare is and how older people are being served which will never happen i East Africa.The came this kind of marginalization the community truly does come right down to stereotypes, This went as you say.Due to circumstances of livelihood  the aging population really suffering different as of the developed countries who are placed in esteem and higher regard.The findings here is also poverty in  the population.Every one is on his/her own survival that no had eyes and time for older people.This very much different with our culture and depend of the family standard  of an  older person.Thank you for you contribution and I would honor your concern on my idea.The credit unions are not working much here rather than Commercial Banks where the age very much matters.The banks will not avail loan for the 50 aged;the reason being how would he/she pay.? Here my concern is a trial Credit Union for some these countries as they were named Cooperative Unions sometimes in the 70th.I am really touched by your concern on my contribution.Come in again.

Thank you Debora;You are indeed the changer and Girls will truly be way to solve the problem for older population.I like you idea and thank for your comments;you are welcome.
