The National Directorate of Employment (NDE), an agency under the Federal Ministry of Labour and Employment, Jigawa state office, on Monday, May 6, 2019 said N10,000 each was distributed to 300 small scale business women in Hadejia Local Government Area.

The state coordinator, Malam Abubakar Muhammad, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Dutse on Monday that the event was conducted under the agency’s Micro Enterprise Enhancement Scheme (MEES). He said the scheme was designed to reach out to all micro entrepreneurs in Nigeria.

Muhammad said the effort was to enable the beneficiaries boost their small-scale businesses. He said that the directorate had also empowered 150 beneficiaries of cosmetology training in Kazaure Local Government Area of the state.

The coordinator said that between January and march, 2019, the trainees were given starter pack and N5,000 each to set up their micro businesses. According to him, we quote “We have also given out N25,000 each to 15 selected artisans to enhance their respective occupations. And currently, plans are under way to train 300 more women in cosmology in the five Emirate Councils of the state.”

All these trainings were aimed at empowering women to be self-reliant, contribute to the well-being of their families and overall economic growth in the state. Muhammad noted.

Sources had earlier reported that the National Directorate of Employment, during the month of April, disbursed N2 million to 200 entrepreneurs in Bauchi state in line with the agency’s goal to eradicate poverty.

The agency’s Director-General, represented by the assistant director, Small Scale Enterprises Department (SSED), NDE headquarters, Abuja, Ahmad Suleiman, said the money would go a long way in helping the beneficiaries grow their small-scale enterprises. He however, added that the action was part of the Federal Government’s effort to drive down poverty and unemployment in the country.

How Will This Gesture Benefit The Business Owner In Nigeria?

The inability of the business owner to access funds to boost his business is a major challenge. The federal government, through this effort, has channeled funds to develop these micro businesses. This will in turn lead to the development of the MSMEs in Nigeria, thereby contributing significantly to the GDP growth.
