TRADERS QUESTION THE EXISTENCE OF PRESIDENTIAL EMPOWERMENT FUNDS

BY OSCAR NKHUWA

Some marketeers in Lusaka have continued to question the existence of the Presidential marketeer’s empowerment funds.

Ms Mercy Mwamba a trader at Kabwata market complained that they have not benefited from the much talked about marketeers empowerment funds and wondered whether these funds were just meant to benefit their colleagues in the Copperbelt.

She says that a lot of traders have failed to expand their businesses due to lack of enough capital to inject in their businesses.

Another trader only identified as Bana Mpundu has since called upon the government to ensure that these funds are equally distributed across the country.
