Will he play against Bayern?“I don’t know. All I can say is Kane won’t. Who plays?

Microfinance Chairman Promises More Capacity Building

first_imgThe newly elected chairman of the Network of Microfinance in Liberia (NEMIL), Rev. Steve N. Gaye, has promised to focus on capacity building of member institutions, including seeking national and international support for the network.Speaking over the weekend during the Network’s special elections, held at Market Place in Monrovia, Rev. Gaye said his leadership will ensure that all members are supported, as capacity building is key to the survival of the network.“We will also create training opportunities for members of the network to help make them vibrant financial institutions,” said Rev. Gaye. “Microfinance needs investment, requires technical skills and the education of all of its members by means of attending workshops on time and being briefed by experts.  That will be the new position of the network,” said Rev. Gaye, adding that“All members will know what they are doing and writing, including reading financial statements,” he stressed. Said Gaye, “We will also focus on developing cordial relationships between the network and government agencies, seeking national and international assistance that will build the network and ensuring that we provide the necessary services needed by the people.”He noted that the issue of capacity building, particularly education of its members was one of the key problems faced by the network over the years. The vice chairman of the Network, Mother Betty Sharpe from SHOCAS, said the organization has been working with people with disabilities over the last ten years.The issues of transparency and accountability will also be prioritized in order to overcome the stigma that ‘Liberian people can credit but cannot pay’.“We need to graduate from taking the money and investing in things that are outside which are not part of the intended purpose,” she said, “Unity can also help us in living up to our statements and paying back the money.”She promised that the leadership of the Network would denounce the issues of ‘I, me, and myself,’ but reach out to Liberians who are in need.In her remarks, the observer and senior secretary of the Microfinance and Financial Inclusion Unit, Central Bank of Liberia, Selina M. Keagon, said she was impressed by the outcome of the elections and hoped that the leadership will work in the interest of its members.“We believe in good leadership structure and want to encourage you to work together for the improvement of the microfinance sector of the CBL,” Mrs. Keagon admonished.She said microfinance is one of the units the CBL is working closely with and believes that the new leadership will take NEMIL to a higher level.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Tourism potential of Grianan of Aileach being wasted, warns councillor

first_imgAn Inishowen councillor has called on the Office for Public Works (OPW) to fulfil their promise of developing a Conservation Management Plan for the Grianan of Aileach in Burt. Sinn Fein’s Jack Murray held talks with the OPW in February 2017 to discuss how a tourism project could be developed for the site.Speaking to Donegal Daily, following his initial address of the issue at the Inishowen Municipal District meeting last week, Murray said: “In February 2017, I arranged for a meeting of local stakeholders and the OPW (as custodians of Grianan of Aileach) to discuss how we could develop the tourism project. “That meeting was hailed as hugely positive as the OPW undertook to develop a Conservation Management Plan, after which we could look at further promoting this spectacular site.“That was two and a half years ago. Yet, this plan has yet to be published and there is no indication of when it will be.“I am now exacerbated with the delay as what we’re asking for is very simple.“I believe that small tasteful signage is erected, telling the fascinating story of Grianan to visitors and explaining the numerous points of interest that can be observed from the view. “Ultimately I would like to see a tour guide employed there to bring the story to life for visitors, while also ensuring that someone is there to protect against damage or vandalism.“I firmly believe that Grianan could be the number one tourist destination in the north-west of Ireland if it received the proper focus and investment.“To date, we’re just met with delays and the local community is fed up of it.”Tourism potential of Grianan of Aileach being wasted, warns councillor was last modified: September 19th, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more
