Members of Yoruba community in Yimi district, under Gwagwalada Area Council have solicited support for those who can’t afford to set petty businesses on their own.
The members spoke separately at their dinner to mark the end of 2016 and usher in the New Year at the community, recently.
Mrs. Toyin Ekunode, welfare leader of the group appealed for government attention in the area of providing soft financial loan to the genuine members intending to embark on businesses but have no resources that could enable them start up.
She said there are many business opportunities for the people, especially women to embark upon but lack of financial assistance hindered them.
However, chairman of the community, David Tunde Ibrahim with the secretary, Kazzeem Afolabi urged the Gwagwalada Chairman to execute projects that the community would come full to life.
