The National Democratic Congress parliamentary candidate for the Ayawaso West Wuogon, John Dumelo has put in place GHc200,000 soft loan with no interest for small scale businesses whose operations have been hit by the coronavirus pandemic in the Ayawaso West Wuogon Municipality.

In a Facebook post, the actor-turned-politician stated that his reason for giving out loans to constituents is as a result of the coronavirus pandemic which has caused many small businesses to take a nosedive.

“As a farmer and businessman, I understand what it means to have low or no harvest and have also experienced opening up shop and making no sales. The COVID-19 crisis including the lockdown has negatively affected many businesses in the Ayawaso West Constituency.

“To the coconut and roasted plantain sellers, the corner shops, the tabletop retail outlets, the evening kenkey, bread/egg, waakye and vegetable sellers and all those who work hand to mouth to take care of their families, hope is coming,” John Dumelo indicated reason why he wants to help small scale businesses

According to Dumelo, he is offering a total of GHc200,000 emergency business loans to all small businesses affected by the outbreak with zero interest rate.

“I am offering a total of 200,000 cedis emergency business loans (0% interest) loan to all those mentioned above including some other small scale businesses across the constituency. The modalities for accessing this scheme shall be communicated directly to the above mentioned.

“I hope this small token will revive many businesses and even create more job opportunities.” He added

The award-winning actor for the past weeks has donated items to residents of Ayawaso West Wuogon municipality.

He said the gesture is to help the people as some of them found it very difficult to endure the lockdown.

The rate of recoveries in Ghana is increasing steadily as health officials have recorded an additional 21 people healed from the novel Coronavirus infection in Ghana.

The total recoveries now stand at 120, the Director-General of the Ghana Health Service told a Press conference on Wednesday.

Ghana’s case count has reached  1,154, from an initial 1,042 recorded earlier.

The GHS Boss further stated that 1021 persons are well and responding to treatment, accounting for about 88.5 per cent of Ghana’s cases.
