The Makueni County Aka Housing Cooperative Society was initiated by like-minded Women of Makueni County in June 2012 after a meeting organised by Makueni County professionals in Malili town to sensitize people about the Konza Techno City.
The idea of a cooperative society was found to be the best option because it would benefit all women and it is regulated by the Government which would ensure that the interest of the members is protected.
