Barely a fortnight after breaking grounds for the drilling & construction of 4 modern mechanized boreholes four 4 communities in the Tarkwa-Nsuaem Constituency, the MP for the good people of Tarkwa-Nsuaem, Hon. George Mireku Duker on Friday, January 3, 2020 distributed 20 tricycles to some constituents on Work & Pay Basis.
This is the first phase of the exercise with other phases scheduled for months ahead.
This initiative by Hon. George Mireku Duker is to boost the local economy of the various communities in Tarkwa through SME development and by extension creating some jobs.
The first phase of the facility which is worth GHc200,000.00 thus, GHc10, 00.00 per tricycle is funded by Ahantaman Rural Bank under the auspices & guarantee of Hon. George Mireku Duker.
In his speech Hon. George Mireku Duker indicated that, he will personally pay the interest charges on all the tricycles which means that, beneficiaries will have to pay the face value of the equipment only.
Hon. Duker further stated that, in the coming days cars will be given out to constituents on work & pay basis and humbly pleaded that, beneficiaries should honour the repayment schedule so a lot of people can also benefit.
Mr. Rashid Abrobrh, Business Development Manager of Ahantaman Rural Bank at his turn eulogized Hon. George Mireku Duker for taking such a giant step in helping his constituents in a very sustainable manner and advised the beneficiaries to ensure they adhere to the repayment plan after which they can apply for extra add-ons.
The beneficiaries in their Thanksgiving speech and subsequent interview with Adom TV commended Hon. Duker for such an inspirational step which is the first of it kind in the Political Leadership history of Tarkwa-Nsuaem.
In his closing remarks, Hon. George Mireku Duker received applause when he indicated that, plans are far underway to secure deep freezers & soft loans to support market women & other petty traders in the Municipal.
It was a colourful, inspiring and successful occassion.
