The MP made these known after he joined the Chief Executive Officer of Masloc, Hajia Abibata Shanni Mohammed Zakariah to disburse a soft loan facility to market traders in his Constituency.
Addressing the beneficiaries, Hon. Mireku Duker said "I admonish all beneficiaries to capitalize on this credit facility to develop and expand their businesses"
The MP revealed that in 2021, his office sponsored interest-free loans to 400 traders and further facilitated Masloc loans for 200 other traders.
"I assure the traders that my office and the Government will continue to support businesses as we build a resilient economy"
The facilitation of soft loans for over 200 traders was held at the Roman Parish Hall in Tarkwa, Western Region.
In all, two hundred and twenty seven (227) market women benefitted from the project.
The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Masloc, Hajia Abibata Shanni Mohammed Zakariah challenged the beneficiaries to repay the loans on time in order to stand a better chance of getting more in the next disbursement schedule.
