In Tharaka-Nithi County, which is east of Mount Kenya, women usually stop working for about six months when they have a baby. Women who trade in the market face problems as they lose customers, sometimes even their stalls are given to other people and they have to start from scratch. In the market of Chuka town, where 90 % of the approximately 3000 traders are women, the municipality has set up a crèche for these women. The care is free of charge for them. This is a good practice that can easily be transferred to other markets, provided the traders are involved in the design of the crèche from the beginning.
