I don’t have any problem with increasing the MEDF fund, but what I have a problem with, is the lack of mechanisms to vet people borrowing the money and successfully collect the money from the would be borrowers.

Previous experience has shown that money is borrowed but never returned which means the money is no longer a revolving fund.

I hope the Tonse alliance government has put mechanisms in place to make sure that the money can be collected in fully to help future borrowers
