170 business owners in Lagos State have benefited from the Nigerian COVID-19 Action Recovery Economic Stimulus Programme (NG-CARES) under the Ministry of Women Affairs Poverty Alleviations (WAPA) Delivery Platform 1:3 which is targeted at alleviating the status of residents who were adversely affected by the pandemic.
Speaking at the Financial Literacy training for participants, the Permanent Secretary of WAPA, Mrs. Oluyemi Kalesanwo stated that the move was part of social inclusion at restoring businesses for the purpose of revitalisation challenges brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic.
She said, “This programme is the third of its series since 2022, aimed at providing support and assisting residents in rebuilding their lives and businesses with the proper skills and knowledge. Participants will also be empowered with cash grants. Remember your success and the success of this programme will serve as a testament to the resilience and determination of the Nigerian people
