Mbwinjeru dairy farmer cooperative society is one that is winning in regard to increasing women representation in their leadership boards. In recent elections two women were nominated for the position of board member in the Supervisory Committee. The mode of voting was by 'mlolongo' system. The position was availed through the retirement of the existing male representative. This represents an affirmative action by the society as well as growing interest among the female members of the society to participate in its governance.
