1,000 DISABLED WOMEN ENTREPRENEURS RECEIVE GH¢2 MILLION SUPPORT

May 1st, 2019 · No Comments

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has presented GH¢2 million to 1,000 women entrepreneurs with disability, under the Presidential Empowerment for Women Entrepreneurs with Disability.

At a brief ceremony at Jubilee House, on Tuesday, 30th April, 2019, President Akufo-Addo said the programme is to help improve the livelihoods of the disabled, and also help realise goals no. 5, 8, and 10 of the 2030 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

“Having set a fund target of some GH¢4 million, over the next two years, to support disabled women in business, the Ministry of Business Development has so far raised GH¢2 million of the amount. The one thousand beneficiaries will not be required to pay any interest on the amounts they are going to receive,” the President said.

“They will only pay back 50% of the principal advanced to them. This gesture is part of my government’s support to our disabled women entrepreneurs, to help them scale up their businesses, and employ more people. We anticipate that, with the monies being given to them today, they will and should be able to employ, at least, two persons.”
