Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has taken the TraderMoni scheme to Anambra State on Friday, visiting traders at the Eke-Awka market, Awka, and Ochanja market in Onitsha.

TraderMoni is one of the Social Investment Programmes(SIP) of the Buhari-Osinbajo regime. The scheme provides soft loans of N10,000 to petty traders and street hawkers. It is supervised by the bank of Industry(BOI)

Today’s Echo gathers that Osinbajo interacted with Tradermoni beneficiaries in Eke-Awka market in Anambra State where thousands of people have collected the initial N10,000 loan for petty traders.

“Providing credit to small business owners is one of the focus of our SIProgrammes. Trader Moni is a distinct loan product that seeks to boost the informal sector by enumerating and empowering traders with loans. We are in Eke-Awka market, Anambra State to monitor the progress,” Osinbajo tweeted on Friday afternoon from his verified handle.

After leaving Awka, Osinbajo headed to Onitsha, arriving at Ochanja, one of the largest markets in West Africa, Friday afternoon.
