Osotsi challenges youths to adapt culture of saving
Vihiga senator Godfrey Osotsi yesterday asked youth in the county to venture into income generating business activities and embrace a culture of saving to boost their financial well-being.
Osotsi (pictured) told hundreds of youths at Vihiga Traders Sacco, Praise Centre in Mbale that they have potential to empower themselves economically if they venture into long term income generating activities.
Osotsi also challenged local political leaders to empower youths by supporting them with funds to enable them start or expamd their business activities.
The legislator noted that youths are badly hit by high cost of living and unemployment and they deserve to be financially supported to strengthen their financial status.
He asked youths to join financial institutions which offer soft loans and business grants to strengthen their financial muscles and beat the hardship occasioned by high cost of living.
“I appeal to youth in Vihiga County to venture into income generating business activities and develop culture of saving to boost their financial well-being. It is the duty of leaders to change the lives of their people especially the youths to be economically empowered,” urged Osotsi.
