“In the past few weeks; we have been working on the portal to make sure it is the right one for our board to approve,” she said, assuring that it will be ready for use by end of the month, ” she added.
Businesses in the informal sector that do not have access to technology will also be apply on a different platform.
“Some of the businesses in some districts across the country who do not have access to technology will not be left out. We do not want to leave out any SME,” she stated.
It is expected that about 200,000 companies within the SMEs sector are to benefit from the package.
