ASILIS Donates to Women Groups

By Kimbi V Muku
The Association for the Improvement of Living commonly Standards known as ASILIS has supported women groups in Nkambe. The donation which was handed to the beneficiaries by its Chief Executive Officer, Gerard Ngala comes as a booster to the “buyam sellam” women in Nkambe. Before handing over the sum of 500.000 FCFA and 600.000 FCFA respectively to the two beneficiary groups, Gerard Ngala said the funds are intended to boost the activities of the buyam-sellam women who are engaged in petite trades. The CEO of ASILIS also added that the amount was a like a seed fund for the two groups. Buying and selling, Gerard Ngala noted is a very important economic activity because the women in their numbers help to evacuate foodstuffs from enclaved area, thus they contribute significantly to the improvement of the standard of living of the rural poor. To sustain their activities, he added, ASILIS thought it necessary to support them by providing them a seed fund which could help set up a small micro-credit and loan scheme.
It should be recalled that the association recently support all Primary schools in Nkambe Central with didactic materials. Besides, ASILIS also donated to the Moslem communities of wat, Nkambe and Binka among others.
