Communications

The President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has presented GH¢2 million to 1,000 persons with disabilities, who are also entrepreneurs, under the Presidential Empowerment for Male Entrepreneurs with Disability (PEMED).

Launching the event at the Jubilee House, on Friday, 24th July 2020, President Akufo-Addo stated that the funds would provide some relief, and also empower persons with disabilities to improve their economic circumstances.

“You, the beneficiaries, have already undergone training in areas such as financial management, business management, risks, marketing, and operations. It is expected that you will be guided by the structured training you have undergone, to enable you scale-up your businesses, and create job opportunities for people,” he said.

The President continued, “Fifty percent (50%) percent of the financial support on offer today are grants, whilst the other fifty percent (50%) are interest-free loans payable over two years. This is a demonstration of Government’s commitment to empower financially the one thousand (1,000) beneficiaries of this initiative, and help mainstream them into national economic activity.”
