Governor commits K200,000 as MSME startup capital to association


NATIONAL Capital District Governor Powes Parkop has committed K200,000 as micro, small and medium enterprises (MSME) start-up capital to Women’s Community Services Foundation (WCSF) which accounts for more than 500 members – mostly underprivileged, disadvantaged and vulnerable in the communities.
Parkop said on Wednesday that K100,000 had been honoured, with the balance yet to be paid. “Traditionally, women and girls have been wealth creators in the country,” he said when witnessing the presentation of capital start-ups to individuals and women’s associations affiliated to the mother association WCSF.
“They are the ones who raise pigs, do the gardening apart from caring for their families.
“They have proven pathways in our tradition. This is the strength and potential our women and girls have to improve their own lives and status and contribute meaningfully to a greater social and economic outcome for our nation.”
