As a way of injecting economic life into the rural communities to foster post conflict development in Sierra Leone, the German Government has earmarked 8 million Euros for physical development in Kailahun, Koinadugu, Pujehun, and the Western Rural District in Sierra Leone.
In a recent meeting held at the District council hall in Kailahun, the NaCSA programme manager for business development programs – John Monrovia, said the whole process would start with a 4 billion Leones innovative fund to translate innovative ideas from conception to implementation.
He said the goal is to increase incomes by supporting new business ideas as well as extending on existing business and reviving defunct businesses with a huge employment potential.
The women from all sectors in Kailahun welcomed the innovative fund but complained of the deplorable road conditions inadequate transportation and poor storage facility to preserve their perishable crops.
Daniel Lalelane consultant for the innovative fund requested participants to put together new ideas and to also identify possible areas of donor intervention.
