Garissa Governor Nathif Jama Adam has urged women to take part in the county's development programmes.
Speaking during the launch of table banking in Garissa town on Sunday, Jama also urged women to embrace the programme to eradicate poverty.
Table banking is a group-funding strategy where members save and borrow immediately from their savings.
Jama said the concept required innovative minds and cooperation. He said women from more than 13 counties had benefited from the banking system.
"Women economic empowerment is key to the growth of any nation and the county as well through capacity building, the concept also transforms women into information vessels," said jama.
