From Sebastian R. Freiku .
The Member of Parliament (MP) for Manhyia South, Matthew Opoku Prempeh, has sealed his commitment and devotion to the welfare of his constituents with interventions to improve their lot.
A number of the constituents, mostly women, from CPC Odumase, Krobo, Odumase, Manhyia, Ala Bar/Afia Kobi electoral areas, being the six electoral areas of his constituency, last Friday benefited from various interventions.
Three hundred widows received half piece wax print each, while 80 apprentice seamstresses were each presented with a sewing machine.
The MP, who is also the Minister of Education, also presented assorted reading books to the Ash Town Community Library.
Dr. Prempeh, also known as Napo, presented 40 waste bins and four tricycles to Mr. Gabriel K. Anane, Chairman of the Manhyia Sub-Metro Council, who received the items on behalf of the Council to support refuse collection in an effort at ensuring a clean environment.
He later inspected the project site of the construction of a Community Centre at Kotia in the constituency.
The Lawmaker indicated that his largesse is a public service emanating from the devotion to serve the interest of his constituents who had supported the government by way of votes at elections.
In a related development, 250 women from the Manhyia South Constituency have received financial assistance from the Microfinance and Small Loans Centre (MASLOC) to grow their business ventures.
The intervention was through the instrumentality of the MP. The assistance comes following the GH¢200 million released by the government for the MASLOC.
Hajia Senam, Regional Manager of MASLOC, said 50% of the figure, which is an improvement upon GH¢37 million released last year, would benefit women.
Repayment of the loans, according to her, is in six months, and said another batch of 200 women from the Manhyia South Constituency would get loans from MASLOC.
