A former minister of Agriculture, Alhaji Sayyadi Abba-Ruma has called on relevant agencies responsible for development of small and micro businesses to synergize and provide adequate funds for the sector.
Alhaji Sayyadi made the call during the inauguration of the micro credit scheme of the National Association of Small Scale Industrialist, NASSI in Abuja.
He explained that if the agencies were cooperating it would help the association assist small scale industries in the rural areas.
He said there was the need to make access to finance much more easier.
The acting Chairman of NASSI, Mr. Solomon Daniel explained that the aim of the micro credit scheme was to make funds available to its members without interest.
Over Five hundred thousand naira was disbursed to some of its members on the occasion.
