Each beneficiary received seed capital of 10,000 naira in cash to begin a home trade that would make them self-reliant to enable them to cater for their essential needs as mothers and housewives.
The DG who was represented at the programme by Abba Musa Abba urged the beneficiaries to use the funds for the purpose it was meant for.
