The Federal University, Birnin Kebbi, has trained 103 entrepreneurs at its maiden edition of Intensive Entrepreneurship Development Training programme.
Magaji said that the training was carried out by the institution’s Entrepreneurship Development Institute (EDI), certified by the Nigeria Incentive-Based Risk Sharing System for Agricultural Lending (NIRSAL) Bank.
He said that the one-week training, which was held within the institution, drew participants from different business categories.
The PRO said that the exercise was aimed at supporting the university community and the public to access the Agro-Business/Small and Medium Enterprises Investment Scheme (AGMEIS) loan facility of NIRSAL Microfinance Bank.
He said that following the recommendation by the NIRSAL Kebbi State Team Lead, Mrs Gloria Adamu-Chinook, who inspected the centre in February, the centre received over 200 applications for the training within a week.
Adamu-Chinook also stated that the second batch of the training would attract about 50 participants.
“This programme is the first batch, while the second batch is expected to cover about 50 participants, and it will also last for a week.
“It might interest you to know that the AGMEIS is an initiative to support policies and measures of the Federal Government for the promotion of agricultural businesses and small/medium enterprises (SMEs).
“It will serve as a vehicle for sustainable economic development and employment generation in the country.
“It has an active website which can be accessed at fubkent.com.ng, while the training is being held in compliance with the COVID-19 safety protocols,” he added.
