In line with the “Changing Lives” agenda of President John Dramani Mahama, and the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC), the Chief Executive of Microfinance and small Loans Centre (MASLOC), Mrs. SedinaTamakloe Attionu, has disbursed an amount of Gh¢38,000.00 to three women groups numbering 75 at Winneba, in the Central Region.
The disbursement coincided with the celebration of this year’s International Women’s Day, a day set aside to celebrates women’s achievements worldwide.
However, the motive behind MASLOC’s disbursement, was to empower women in Winneba and its environs to stand on their own.
Addressing the women of Winneba, the CEO of MASLOC, Mrs.SedinaTamakloe Attionutook the opportunity to wish all women well and encourage them to work hard to support their families.
MASLOC boss pledged the centre’s commitment of uplifting the living standards of women through giving them soft loans to expand their businesses.
She warned that, MASLOC loans, are not for free and, therefore, the women should ensure that they pay the monies on time for others to also benefit.
According to her, President John Dramani Mahama and his government, is working hard to support MASLOC, so that more women would be assisted to stand on their feet.
In reaction to accusers of President John Mahama who says he should rather put monies into their pocket and stop the numerous developmental projects spread across the country, in reaction she said, when they fall sick and have more monies in their pocket but could not have access to any healthcare, what would they do with the money in their pockets?.
President Mahama, according to Mrs. Attionu, is about the welfare of Ghanaian women and his putting measures in place to support them.
MASLOC she indicated, has changed its ways of operations and has added education, where beneficiaries are educated on how to grow their loans and be able to pay on time, all due to previous experience as beneficiaries refuses to pay back.
These and many strategies Mrs. SedinaTamakloeAttionu said has contributed to the recovery rate of 70 percent of loans disbursed across the country.
