Mandago Pledges Support for Businesses Affected by Covid-19

Uasin Gishu Governor Jackson Mandago has asked local business people to work with his administration in order to hasten recovery from the adverse economic effects caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Speaking on Saturday, at Matunda Township, in Soy Sub County when he officially opened Oasis Oryx Fuel and service station, the Governor added that his administration is working with the county assembly to introduce a raft of incentives for economic recovery.

Following the Covid-19 pandemic, many businesses were affected especially after the government introduced restrictions in a bid to curb the spread of the virus – among then dusk to dawn curfew and closure of entertainment joints.

But the County Government in collaboration with the County Assembly of Uasin Gishu is now working on ways and policies that will bail out businesses that were affected.

County Executive for Trade and Industrialization Dr. Emily Kogos, who was also present during the event, asked small-scale business people to join Savings and Credit Co-operative Societies in order to access affordable loans.

Through the Enterprise Development Fund, the County Government of Uasin Gishu has been giving out loans to Saccos with a low interest of 5 percent per year.
