She said providing soft loans for corps members with business ideas would assist making them to become job creators.
Iluebbey said, “The Graduate Entrepreneurship Fund of the BoI with the NYSC is a laudable idea. We wish the scheme could be bigger than what t is now. Making it bigger will accommodate more corps members who have good ideas.
“We want other corporate bodies, banks and even wealthy individuals to emulate the Bank of Industry in this area. Many of the corps members have wonderful business ideas and the soft loan will help them to transform their ideas into thriving business enterprises.”
