Corps mem­bers to get loans to start businesses

Daily Trust - - BUSINESS - By Mau­reen Onochie

Corps mem­bers will soon start get­ting loans to en­able them start their own businesses, Di­rec­tor Gen­eral, Bri­gadier Gen­eral John­son Olawumi, has said. Speak­ing when he re­ceived the team of Guards Bri­gade led by the Com­man­der of the bri­gade, Bri­gadier Gen­eral Anthony Omo­zoje, lamented that trained corps mem­bers lacked cap­i­tal to start ven­ture into busi­ness to be­come self-em­ployed.

He said that the scheme has signed a Me­moran­dum of Un­der­stand­ing (MoU) with the Bank of In­dus­tries to pro­vide loans for corps mem­bers with busi­ness pro­pos­als.

Olawumi said the in­ten­tion of the skills ac­qui­si­tion train­ing and em­pow­er­ment was to help solve the chal­lenges of un­em­ploy­ment which usu­ally leads to in­se­cu­rity.

On his part, Com­man­der of the bri­gade, Bri­gadier Gen­eral Anthony Omo­zoje said the visit was to cre­ate a syn­ergy with the scheme and pro­vide as­sis­tance to the agency when called to do so.
