Mrs Kosi Yankey-Ayeh, Executive Director for the National Board for Small Scale Industries (NBSSI), has said her institution has extended the deadline for applications for the GHS1 billion Coronavirus Alleviation Programme Business Support Scheme by six more days.

Ms Yankey-Ayeh,  said decision was made in consultation with the steering committee and in consultation with our stakeholders.

She further revealed that the application process faced some network challenges especially in the rural areas.

“This decision was made in consultation with the steering committee and in consultation with our stakeholders who had come to us with various reasons and concerns that they raised with regards to the work that we are doing on the field. The trade and business associations wrote to petition, asking for more time to enable them address the specific challenges that some of their members were going through with their application processes.”

“Some of these challenges were ensuring that they were able to finalize their applications, they were able to collate all the paper applications they had sent to the various districts and rural areas across the length and breadth of the nation, that they had not collected and inputted,” she added.

She added that “It is also important to know that in the first week when we started, some of the Telcos had network difficulties so across the length and breadth, a few people started the registration process and were unable to complete through to the end of the application.

“With all of this information, we will extend by six extra days, with a hard deadline of the 26th June 2020, which is a Friday.”
