He said the credit facility would help them acquire agricultural equipment, seedlings and fertiliser.
“We at Emerging Africa have identified that people in Gwong community are largely farmers that specialise in ginger. We deemed it necessary as part of our strategy to encourage and improve the lives of the people here through the provision of credit facility,” he said.
He enjoined Gwong people to take ownership of the bank and work towards its success.
Also speaking, the acting managing director of Gwong MFB, Blessing Atigogo, called on the people to form themselves into co-operative societies to be able to easily access the loans.
In his remarks, the Kpop Gwong, who was represented by Barnabas Dangana, expressed optimism that the acquisition of Gwong MFB by Emerging Africa would bring good tidings to Gwong and its people.
