(AGENDAWATCHDOG) – The Plateau State Microfinance Development Agency (PLASMIDA) has distributed starter packs to 500 graduands from the Phase IV Simon Bako Lalong empowerment Schemes (SLEMS) in Jos.
The graduands were trained in different lines of skill acquisition such as fishery, tailoring, poultry, hairdressing, aluminium works, cosmetology, catering, leather works, ICT, etc.
All the trainees, who were trained by the Agency, were empowered with started packs to kick-start their businesses immediately so as to also become employers of labour someday.
POTENTIAL IMPACT: Graduates of the training scheme will become self employed entrepreneurs of their own, if they judiciously make use of their starter packs/kits to make a living. The jobs that would be created by hem will in turn result in the economic development and growth of the state, nay the country.
