500 informal businesses run by widows get Edo govt grants

No less than 500 informal businesses in Edo State run by widows have received grants to boost their business ventures.

Another beneficiary, Mrs Enahoro Elizabeth in Sakponba Road axis, said the grant has given a facelift to her business.“You don’t know what this support really means to a petty trader like me? I sell oranges, cocoyam, and garri, and with the rise in prices of commodities in the market, restocking was a problem. But with this grant, I have been to the market to restock and am ready to go into the season and make better profit. I thank the Governor and Access Bank for coming through for me and my family.”

Also, a widow in Amagba Community, Mrs Osemwingie Dora said she intends to use the grant to support her firewood business, adding “I received my own N10,000 today and I intend to channel it into my firewood business. Considering the rise in the price of cooking gas, I envisaged a boom in our firewood business but didn’t have money, because I feed my family from this my small business.

“And today God has used Governor Obaseki to answer my prayers. I thank the governor for always putting the people at the forefront of every programme embarked upon by the government. Widows in Edo are specifically proud of him.”Copyright PUNCH.All rights reserved.
