A sum of N15 million has been given to 50 corp members in five states by Access Bank Plc in order to implement their business plans.
The bank did this through its Accesspreneur programme in partnership with the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), the bank’s Assistant General Manager, Aminu Inuwa, said during the disbursement of the grant at the Kusalla NYSC orientation camp in Kano, at the weekend.
According to Inuwa, the winners of the entrepreneurial business idea contest organised by the bank were from Kano, Oyo, Kogi, Edo and Abuja with the highest grant going to winners of N1 million each.
He further said that each state was given N3 million with the first winner getting N1 million to encourage young entrepreneurs.
The camp director, Ben Akpor, who represented the state NYSC coordinator, Hajiya Aisha Tata-Mohammed, advised the contest winners to effectively utilise what they had gotten from the bank and strongly pursue their dreams of becoming successful business personalities in their lives.
Onyia Chinecherem, who won an N1million grant at the Kano camp appreciated the bank for the financial support to actualize her dream as a young entrepreneur.
