The Micro Small Enterprises Authority is calling for the activation of the MSE Funds currently stuck at the treasury.
The Chairman of Micro and Small Medium Enterprises Authority, Mr. James Mureu says that activation of the funds needs to be expedited in order to support the lowest persons in the Sector.
According to Mureu the MSE sector contributes overwhelmingly to the country’s Gross Domestic Product by employing nearly 81 percent of the population.
He says that the sector will no longer be looked down up on and yet it carries the responsibility of the country on its shoulders.
“We will no longer be that sector that is looked down up on and yet we are carrying the responsibility of the country on our shoulders. We are asking those people in authority and ministry down us that time has come for us to speak with one voice as an Authority,” he said.
MSEA Regional Leader Richard Muteti also called for the proper handling of resources to help the sector grow.
“We have been consulting and discussing, we want to refocus this country as the sector requires decent work sites. We want resources to be handled properly so that the sector can grow,” said Muteti.
