The Business Adversary Centre/Rural Enterprise project and the Amandine West District Assembly have presented working tools to ten master artisans as start-up tools to enable them start their own businesses.
The items are seven carpentry tools, two vulcanising tools and one welding tool.
Making the presentation, the District Chief Executive (DCE), Mr. William Bediako Asante, said the presentation was in line with the government’s policy to support more master artisans who have completed their apprenticeship and are without any working tools.
He further advised them to take proper care of the items to prolong their lifespans.
Mr. Bediako Asante warned them not to sell the items, but use them for the intended purposes.
The District Business Development Officer, Mr. Vincent Woode, informed the artisans that his outfit would be visiting their working places to inspect their tools.
In a related development, the Business Advisory Center/Rural Enterprise has also trained 28 persons in baking and confectionery, including 26 females.
The 5-day training was aimed at equipping the participants in the production of bread, meat pie, cake, short bread biscuits, chips, spring rolls, among others.
The District Chief Executive (DCE) for Amansie West, Mr. William Bediako Asante, was highly impressed with the commitment of the women and promised to provide a milling machine to help them produce on a large scale.
The DCE also advised them to put their skills into practice.
The District Development Officer of BAC/Amansie West, Mr. Vincent Abakah Woods, assured the participants of support by the BAC.
