Disbursement Of Over EC$600,000 In Grants To 80 Persons

Today saw the disbursement of over EC$600,000 in grants to 80 persons under the PRYME and PRYME Plus programmes – spearheaded by the Minister of Finance, Economic Planning, Sustainable Development and Information Technology Hon. Camillo Gonsalves.

Grant amounts range between $2,500 and $40,000, with the majority of the successful applicants operating within the Agriculture / Agro-processing, food preparation and beauty/grooming industries.

This is the first batch of recipients who will benefit from the overall fund of approximately $4.85 million. The fund will be available for one calendar year, so Vincentians are being urged to still continue to apply.
