The Bidii Marie group in Siaya County registered as a community-based organisation in 2016. Its mission is to empower its community for a better future. In support of this aim, each member undertakes to involve orphans, widows, the elderly and people with disabilities in the group.
The group consists of women and men and has 25 members*. Each member runs their own business, such as selling textiles, food or agricultural equipment, but also contributes to the management of a small catering establishment run by the group.
