In continuation of her regular distribution of the Benedicta’s Market Women Money, Chairman of Etsako East Local Government Area, Edo State, Benedica Attoh, along with members of Team Dr. Uyi Igbinadolor for Asue/Ogie, stormed the Agenebode Main Market, yesterday, to distribute N10,000 each to traders in support of their businesses. 

While handing over the money to each of the beneficiaries, including vegetable, ‘pure water’, fufu, fish sellers, hawkers and others at the market, the National Coordinator of Team Dr. Uyi Igbinadolor for Asue/Ogie, Jude Ogbekile, urged the beneficiaries to plant the financial support from the US-based donor as a seed by adding it to their micro-businesses.

He thanked the council chairman for the good report about her human capital development activities as seen and heard during the tour in the market.

Addressing the women, the council boss introduced Dr. Uyi Igbinadolor as the donor of the N300,000 for 30 women as a lifeline to support for the poorest of the poor in the society due to the high level of hunger caused by the inhumane policies of the Federal Government.
