Funding for Businesses that were Looted or Vandalized
Title: Introducing The Phoenix Support Fund for businesses
These last few days and Infact, year has been tough on every Nigerian... just as we were slowly picking up the pieces of our businesses from the effect of COVID.... vandalization and looting happened and boy, this hit home. I don’t know one person who doesn’t know one persons store/business that got vandalized or destroyed. We all use these places...
From Banks, to Restaurants, to Clothing Stores to factories, to courts, you name it. Like this is wild. My big sister’s take our restaurant, Mama’s Place Naija, got destroyed at the mall in Surulere. My egbons store, Mobos Fashion had 2 branches that got destroyed, My friend, Somtos factory got destroyed, I can go on an on. There were too many. They have all lost millions.
Where do they all even start, their source of livelihood got snatched in the twinkle of an eye. Many people have lost their jobs too overnight. This isn’t just their problem, it is our problem. As much as we can do to help these businesses, let’s all come together to help our brothers and sisters.
My company, AGS Tribe have Partnered with Diatom Impact to birth The Phoenix Support Fund to help businesses who have been affected by the recent unrest to rise from ashes through grants (up to 500k per business) and capacity development. We already have funding from The Platform Capital group.
