The Tonse Alliance led government wants the loan scheme to become one of the Malawi’s strategies to achieve government’s vision 2063 goals.

Neef Limited has also changed its logos from Medf, a branded version of two former State-owned enterprises namely Mardef and Youth Enterprise Development Fund (Yedef).

According to the secretary to treasury, Chauncy Simwaka, the rebranding is “in line with the aspirations of the new government towards the Malawians.”

 

The government is trying its best to ensure that the youth and women have a viable financial access in the country.

Economic Association Of Malawi president Lauryn Nyasulu has said there is need for restructuring the loan facility to alleviate adverse effects of political interference on the loans to the youth who owns micro businesses with cash flow problems.

According to Nyasulu significant numbers of youths have inverted or trying to come up with innovations but have no financial destination to take their dreams to.

Social commentator Wonderful Mkuche said government has to make sure economy is working for all, youth inclusive.

“When things are good at macro level it also impact the micro level, but we need direct social developmental loans that can spur innovative growth that are in line with modern world, ” he said.

He added that they is more to be done in practice to uplift lives of young people.

This Chakwera is the worst where appointment are concerned Mdyetseni is a known MCP operative who openly declares even at information. APM wised to appoint party cronies and tribesmen but Chakwera is worse. Unfortunately most of his appointments ar3 useless. Chilima you are sleeping on the job allowing this pastor drunk with power to reverse the gains you are making in reforms.
