One hundred and twenty-six people were today awarded their cheques under the Micro and Small business grant initiative in Navua.
The initiative is the second phase of the government’s Micro and Small Business Grant initiative.
Before distributing the cheques to the recipients this morning Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama reminded them that the money was derived from hard earned tax payers’ dollars.
“We are putting our confidence and trust in you to use this assistance well. Because we see you as part of our national effort to promote a business culture in Fiji. To create a solid base of small business people who can be the backbone of our economy.”
Bainimarama said the purpose of this exercise is to ignite and encourage a love of business among ordinary people.
He also called on the established business communities to join the government in helping these smaller businesses grow.
