Ghanaian actor-turned-politician, John Dumelo, has voted GH¢200,000
cedis to assist struggling small-scale businesses within the Ayawaso
West Wuogon constituency in Accra where he is seeking to become the
Member of Parliament.
The amount will be disbursed to traders who
are mostly engaged in ‘hand to mouth’ businesses as interest-free loans
to cushion them in the midst of the deadly coronavirus which is causing
businesses to flounder.
He observed the Covid-19 outbreak, including the partial lockdown in parts of the country, has negatively affected many businesses in the Ayawaso West constituency
“To the coconut and roasted plantain sellers, the corner shops, the
table top retail outlets, the evening kenkey, bread/egg, waakye and
vegetable sellers and all those who work hand to mouth to take care of
their families, hope is coming,” he tweeted Wednesday.
“I am offering a total of 200,000 cedis emergency business loans (0%
interest) loan to all those mentioned above including some other
small-scale businesses across the constituency.”
financial support, Mr Dumelo has donated a quantum of relief items
mainly made up of food to dwellers of the Ayawaso West Wuogon
constituency. The NDC’s PC has contributed enormously towards the
well-being of the people of Ayawaso before, during and after the
imposition of restrictive movement.
