10,000 APPLY FOR NANA CASH
ABOUT 10,000 YOUTH have applied for support in government’s ‘Youth Entrepreneurship’ programme, this year.
The programme, which is under the National Entrepreneurship and Innovation Plan (NEIP), seeks to support business starters.
Approximately 7,000 youth applied for financial support from the programme last year, out of which 1,350 were supported.
The beneficiaries, who are mainly youth, were trained and given some amount of money to start their own businesses.
John Kumah, the CEO of NEIP, made the disclosure whilst addressing New Patriotic Party (NPP) supporters in Kumasi.
He stated that the beneficiaries of the programme during its first window opening are doing well on the job market.
John Kumah said “During the opening of the second window, which is 2019, 10,000 people have applied for support from us.
“Out of this staggering number of applicants, at least 3,000 of them would secure financial support from the NEIP to start their own businesses”.
John Kumah encouraged the public, notably the youth, to cultivate the habit of starting their own businesses in order to make it in life.
