Grant funding

Selwa Nandan, Lautoka
Saturday, November 04, 2017

IT was revealed by the Minister for Industry, Trade and Tourism Faiyaz Koya that since the introduction of the Micro and Small Business Grants in 2014, the Government has invested a total of $15.9 million to support the budding entrepreneurs (FT 31/10).

I believe (if I am not wrong) that a large chunk of the funding towards this scheme was provided by the Government of India.

Therefore, I believe it is only appropriate that we should acknowledge the generous contribution which will no doubt make a huge difference in the lives of the recipients.

Thank you India for the tremendous support! May God bless you and your people!
