Speaking at the formal launch of TraderMoni at the Owerri Relief Market, Imo State, at the weekend, Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, said that TraderMoni is a deliberate policy of the Federal Government to assist small scale businesses in the country to grow as well as to reduce poverty among the people.

The United Kingdom Prime Minister, Theresa May, had last month during a three-day trip to Africa, said Nigeria is home to more poor people than any other nation in the world.

“The TraderMoni, which provides loans of N10,000 to registered beneficiaries is part of the deliberate policy of the Federal Government to assist micro businesses to grow and to reduce the poverty level especially among the people in the rural areas by giving them access to funds to help their businesses,” he said.

Osinbajo also said that the  APC-led Federal Government  would continue to ensure that the welfare of Nigerians would continue to be its major priority and urged the people to continue to support efforts of government to make the country a better place for all.


The Presidency also promised that before the end of 2018, TraderMoni will reach the 36 States of the Federation.
