WINDHOEK, 18 APR – Five small business owners in the Windhoek West Constituency received equipment worth N.dollars 150 000 from their constituency here on Tuesday.

“We take care of our residents by empowering them and working closely with them by providing them with materials and equipment for small and medium enterprises,” Trepper said.
One of the beneficiaries, Valombola Elkan One, thanked the constituency for making their dreams come true.
Valombola owns Pinelka Investment CC and received welding and construction equipment worth N.dollars 39 375.
The councillor encouraged other unemployed people with business ideas in the constituency to approach his office for assistance.
