THA Chief Secretary Hon. Kelvin Charles encouraged the recipients: “Today ought to represent the start of a new period in your business; make it count and use the grant wisely. Don’t squander what you are given. Put in the hard work because hard work brings success,” he said.
The $7,500 grant helps to assist small businesses. In addition, the R.EA.C.H Unit offers training and other opportunities to assist clients in selling and marketing their products.
