The Kisii County Government Efforts in Addressing Environmental Conflict Resulting from Women Entrepreneurship

Grace Kerubo Ogeto

Women are pillars in most families and communities in the world. For these women to provide for their families they engage in entrepreneurial activities in open air markets.Worldwide, open-air markets have been perceived as making valuable contributions to the local community and diversity in shopping boosting the rural economy.Kenya is one country that believes in women's economic empowerment through entrepreneurship. However most open air markets lack a conducive environment for these women traders to carry out their entrepreneurial activities without conflicts. The objective of this paper is to explore the county government efforts in addressing challenges facing women entrepreneurs in open air markets. Major areas of focus were on provision of infrastructure, clean water and sanitation and market and street lighting. The methodology used was descriptive survey involving a sample of 300 women entrepreneurs randomly and purposively selected. The findings indicated that the county government has tried to address major challenges though there are issues here and there that are not yet addressed. In conclusion this paper commends the county for their efforts but recommends that areas that have not been addressed fully be embarked on.
