Kasungu, July 29, 2019: In its continued support towards empowering and providing conducive environment for small scale businesses, Local Government Accountability and Performance (LGAP) has handed over four market infrastructures to Kasungu District Council.

LGAP has constructed market shelters at Lisasadzi Checkpoint Market, market slabs at Bua and Kawamba trading centres and waste management area at Chinkhoma Trading Centre in the district.

Speaking during the handover ceremony on Tuesday, LGAP Technical Director, Phaniso Kaluwa said the buildings will assist in transforming small scale businesses into large scale.
 
Kaluwa added that the infrastructure will also help Kasungu District Council to extend revenue collection base.

“We want to have conducive environment in all small markets in all districts and in so doing, help to uplift and transform small scale businesses into large firms.

 

“These structures will also help the council to expand its revenue collection purse that will help the councils to fund daily operations in the district,” Kaluwa said.

 

District Commissioner James Kanyangalazi conveyed his appreciation to LGAP Project, saying it will assist in boosting business operations in the district by operating under hygienic and comfortable business places.

 

“We are very much proud of these projects by LGAP because they will help more small scale businesses in the district to go to other levels due to comfortability and sanitation around these market places,” Kanyangalazi said.

 

One of the fish vendors at Lisasadzi Checkpoint Market, Aubrey Nkhoma said he was optimistic that his fish business would grow since before the market shelter, it was being affected by rainfall and sunshine.

 

LGAP Project is being implemented by the Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development with financial support from United States Agency for International Development (USAID).
