Despite the initial funds deployed as capital, Akinmeji noted that he had been able to stabilise his business with the help of the low interest loan, and had secured uninterrupted power and constant supply of oxygen for his fingerlings.
“I started with only my wife and now we have about 8 staff members, who run shifts daily, including technicians, and who are all on our payroll. With the profits from this loan, we have been able to acquire our land with Certificate of Occupancy. This loan has enabled me to achieve, within this short time, what could not have been possible for me and my wife in the next 150 years working in the bank," he disclosed.

Meanwhile, Mr Isaac Babatope enthused that he had been able to found his own printing press called Babatope Printing Press International, of which he was the Managing Director, and that speed and delivery is now the slogan.

“The scheme is not about ‘godfatherism’ preference was shown to anybody. Edo State Government gave me this loan with low interest rate and now I have, polar 92 cutting machine, computers, printing machines”.

He continued that he only had a partner before receiving the loan, but three other people had since joined, under remunerative employment, while he was able to deliver promptly because he now had machinery.

He however called on the Government to provide more facilities to encourage others to join the business.
