Montserrado County District #13 Representative, Edward Flomo, has once again emphasized his dedication to empowering local business owners by offering financial grants through his ongoing empowerment program in the district.
Since its inception in 2018, the program has successfully distributed a total of L$27.5 million to support the growth and development of businesses within the constituency.
This initiative has received widespread acclaim for its positive impact on the local economy, according to our reporter.
Representative Flomo’s objective is to provide monetary aid to aspiring entrepreneurs and established business owners who face difficulties in accessing capital and resources.
By granting these funds, the lawmaker, who is also running for re-election in the upcoming October 10, 2023, elections, hopes to stimulate economic growth, create job opportunities, and cultivate a flourishing business environment in his district.
During a recent event, where he distributed an additional L$1.5 million to over two hundred business owners, Representative Flomo emphasized the significance of supporting local businesses.
Many recipients have reported an increase in revenue, improved profitability, and enhanced competitiveness as a direct result of this financial assistance.
The local business owners expressed their gratitude for the support received through the Empowerment Program and highlighted that the grant will enable them to expand their businesses and purchase additional goods.
