Victims of Odawna market fire to get MASLOC support –


The Microfinance and Small Loans Centre (MASLOC) will offer loans to victims of the Odawna market fire which occurred on Wednesday.

The fund is to enable the women whose wares were destroyed at the Pedestrian Shopping Centre close to the Kwame Nkrumah Interchange get back to business.

Board Chairman of MASLOC, Seth Baah Acheampong made this known when a team from the Centre visited the market to assess the impact of the fire outbreak.

“We have been given a list of about 4,000 from the Municipal Assembly. We met the union leaders. We have met NADMO too and we have to get them in groups and then help the right people” he said.

She stressed that MASLOC has the interest of women at heart that is why about 80 per cent of the low-interest funds are given to them.
