National Economic Empowerment Fund (NEEF) limited has seen some parents of disabled children in Phalombe as eligible loan beneficiaries after going through business and loan management training.
Speaking when awarding NEEF Forms to successful clubs of parents of disabled children at a function held in GVH Manjslende in the area of Traditional Authority (T/A) M’khumba in Phalombe, NEEF Loan Officer, Chris Kanyoza has commended parents of disabled children for their effort to become loan beneficiaries saying the loans will transform their lives. He however advised the clubs to repay the loan once they access it saying failing which they will not have another loan opportunity in the second phase.
“Let me congratulate all disability clubs that have made it to this far. Nothing is impossible in business, please work hard in your business activities and later, you will be able to repay your loan to NEEF limited failing which, will deprive your integrity, “said Kanyoza.
Speaking at that approval meeting, Group Village Head Manjalende expressed his gratitude to FEDOMA for linking up all disability clubs to NEEF limited saying the lives of such people shall be transformed once they get the loans.
“I would like to extend my profound gratitudes to FEDOMA for the job well done as you have linked up these clubs to NEEF limited. For so ling, we have been hearing stories of other people elsewhere getting loans and nobody from my area was considered by then. Now this is our time for that you have recognized these parents of disabled children in my area,” said GVH Manjalende.
Manjalende also shared the same notes with Kanyoza as he urged his subordinates to repay the loan but he was quick to assure the Loan Officer that the villagers will repay the laons as he trusts them.
“I shall be vry happy if you repay the loan and my village will not wear negative image. However, let me assure you NEEF Officefrs that I trust these people please give them loans quickly as this is the harvest season and businesses are at their pick and they (loan beneficiaries
) will indeed repay believe you me,"he said.
Two disability clubs each having a total of 10 parents of disabled children from that area will benefit from the loan thisy year.
