It is one of the smallest districts in the country with about 180, 000 population. But the zeal of masses to realize their business ingenuity is overwhelming. MEDF has disbursed loans to more than 92 groups in Neno Districts alone.
This translates to more than two thousand individual members as the groups comprise a minimum of ten people and maximum of 20. The impact of the multiplier effect is also huge is we take into board the estimated threshold of four members per family.
And on Saturday, MEDF officially presented cheques to 5 of these 92 groups at Neno Girls Secondary School Hall in the presence of Neno District Commissioner Mr. Blessings Nkhoma; Neno North Member of Parliament Thoko Tembo; Directors of MEDF Board, Miss Chisomo Nkolokosa and Dr. Nicholas Namaliya.
Some of these beneficiaries are into welding and fabrication, value addition, farm produce just to mention but a few of their business ventures.
