The Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises Development Agency (MSMEDA) injected about EGP2.4bn in Fayoum governorate since the agency establishment in 1991, said Ashraf Darwish, manager of the Fayoum Branch at MSMEDA on Sunday during the launch of a new campaign to fight illegal migration entitled “Survival Ships” by the Ministry of Migration and Egyptian Expats.
“We always support youth to start their businesses through facilitating lending conditions. We are keen on supporting entrepreneurship in the governorate,” Darwish said, adding that MSMEDA has a good experience in fighting illegal migration through supporting youth to have their businesses.
MSMEDA participated in several campaigns to fight illegal migration to identify its risks including a campaign entitled “How to start your project?”, he mentioned, noting that MSMEDA received a good reaction from the youth in Fayoum.
Huge crowds of youth and students participated in the event on Sunday where the Ministry of Migration’s efforts to fight illegal migration were highlighted. The event also shed light on three models of the Egyptian youth who got financed from MSMEDA and achieved a great success.
Minister of Migration and Egyptian Expats Nabila Makram said combating illegal migration campaigns in line with paying special attention to the youth and supporting them to start their businesses were of paramount importance.
