The Micro and Small Business Grants Programme has to date impacted the lives of 193,180 Fijians.
The Ministry of Industry and Trade says the assistance has benefitted the smallest of businesses that have been recognised to have the capability to make a difference, not only in their lives, but in their communities and the Fijian economy, as a whole.
It says the Micro and Small Business Grant initiative makes available grants of up to $1,000 for start‑ups and assistance for existing micro and small businesses.
The Ministry says that it continues to monitor the performance of successful recipients through its monitoring and evaluation exercise across Viti Levu and Vanua Levu.
It has also highlighted in the next budgetary period, the Ministry will request funds for targeted support for those Micro and Small Business Grant recipients that have excelled.ADVERTISEMENT Listen to the latest news on our 5 radio stations Legend FM, Viti FM, Radio Sargam, FM96 and Navtarang.
