KWASSIP to Support 100 Young Business Owners at 8th Kwara Trade Fair

By Saka Idowu Eletu

On Monday, the Kwara State Social Investment Programmes (KWASSIP) announced that it would support at least 100 Kwapreneurs to attend the 8th Kwara Trade Fair to display their products and services to a larger audience.

In July, Kwapreneurs, a state government entrepreneurship program that provides startup funding to people under the age of 35, awarded 170 enterprises loans ranging from N250,000 to N3,000,000.

In a statement, the Director General of KWASSIP, Mo Brimah said, “We are pleased to announce sponsorship for 100 winners of our non-interest loan scheme for young business owners, kwapreneurs, to the 8th Trade fair. It is in line with our focus to support the young business owners in promoting and growing their businesses”.

The trade fair is organised by the Kwara Chamber of Commerce, Industry, Mines and Agriculture (KWACCIMA) to showcase businesses in Kwara.

Nigerian Association Of Small and Medium Enterprises (NASME) Kwara State chapter partnered with KWACCIMA to organise a Micro, Small and Medium Entreprises (MSMEs) section to support the growth of their businesses and help sell their products, which KWASSIP keyed into to encourage outstanding beneficiaries from the Kwapreneurs scheme.

“The Trade Fair provides a platform for the young business owners earlier granted loans to advertise their brands and products to a wider audience. We are happy to do this as a continuation of our investment in their growth as emerging leaders in business and enterprise,” he said.

Brimah noted that the sponsorship highlighted Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq-led government’s undying commitment to empowering young people for sustainable development and inclusive growth in the state.

“This is a testament to the scope of Kwapreneurs as a scheme beyond granting loans. It is an encompassing initiative that includes building capacity and providing continuous support for the businesses of beneficiaries to grow. This is how we are different and seek to inspire our young people to succeed.”

The Trade fair is scheduled to hold from 25th November to 7th December, 2021 at the Kwara State Stadium Complex, Ilorin in different sessions.
