“We waited patiently for over 3 weeks till today to identify, select & put a smile on the face of the last grassroot woman to benefit from the November 2021 last batch disbursement of JAKIN N.G.O Business Scale Up Project micro credit 3 months refundable grant. With the help of our commited and dependable individual partners, N5,000,000 naira was disbursed to 214 grassroot women majorly in Lagos Mainland and Somolu LGAs. 9 women received N40k each, 54 received N30k each while 151 received N20k to boost the businesses.
