THE Women Initiative for Sustainable Environment (WISE), an NGO, said on Wednesday that it would offer a grant of 7,500 US dollars as start-up capital to 30 women in Kaduna State to run clean cooking stove enterprises.

The WISE Founder and Programme Director, Ms Olanike Olugboji, made this known in Kaduna, on the sideline of a five-day training on clean cooking stove enterprise.

Olugboji told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that the 30 women were paired into 15 groups and each would receive 500 dollars as start-up grant.

According to her, the grant would enable the beneficiaries to run clean cooking stove enterprises in their respective communities.

“It is a sustainability plan to make sure that the women start the business and ran it successfully.

“We have linked them up with producers of the product; the amount would, therefore, help them buy the first set of the stoves and start the business.

“We believe that overtime, they would be able to grow the capital and expand gradually.”

She added that additional provision of N150,000 has been set aside as a revolving fund for those who want to scale up.
