By Korboi K. Gbelewala/LINA Lofa County Correspondent

VOINJAMA, Sept 13, (LINA)-A team from the Liberia Investing for Business Expansion (LIBE) has ended a week-long investigating Business Expansion outreach program for entrepreneurs in Lofa County.

The organization launched in 2012, is a USAID funded program that provides free capacity-building, training and technical assistance to
Small and Medium Entrepreneurs and banks to help and expand their businesses.

The program also seeks to provide bank staff skills they need to adapt processes through training, coaching and monitoring to review
and evaluate barrowers’ applications and properly structure their loan deals.

The program also focuses on several sectors, including agro-business, energy, general merchandize trade and hospitality.

The communication and outreach specialist of the Liberia Investing for Business Expansion, Mr. E. Chesty Gbongon, said since the program
was launched in 2012 the organization has been carrying on series of business outreach programs across Liberia.

Mr. Gbongon also named infrastructure, construction, transportation, provision of logistics as well as healthcare delivery as part of activities the Liberia Investing for Business Expansion is currently engaged in.

Also in remarks at the end of the outreach, the Liberia Investing for Business Expansion outreach Officer, Madam Beatrice Forpoh, described
the week-long outreach program in Lofa County as successful and challenged business entrepreneurs to take the lead by expanding their local businesses in the country.

Business entrepreneurs who took part in the week-long outreach program have meanwhile lauded the Liberia Investigating Business Expansion, and called on their colleagues to take advantage of the program as it is geared towards improving the skills of business people and other entrepreneurs in carrying on their activities.
