The Angolan government has approved the injection of 4 billion kwanzas ($6.3 million) into small businesses and startups, as part of the economic measures approved in April 2020 for the opening of a set of lines of credit to productive sectors of the economy.
Angolan Secretary of State for the Economy, Mário Caetano João, announced the effective provision of funding of 4 billion kwanzas, or more than 6 million dollars, for micro-businesses. Each small business will be able to benefit from 7 million kwanzas, or about $ 11,000, from this operational fund starting from September 23rd, 2020.
The material and technical conditions are in place to inject the money into the microcredit support line. The Angolan Active Venture Capital Fund (FACRA) has already transferred 2 billion kwanzas for microcredit companies and credit unions linked to the project. To have access to it, the entrepreneur must meet the conditions required by said companies.
The sectors concerned are: agriculture, poultry farming, aquaculture, animal husbandry, food processing and beverage production, logistics and distribution of agro-food products, recycling, fishing, transport services, vocational training, software development, tourism, and cultural and artistic production.
This financing comes within the framework of economic measures approved by presidential decree, and aimed at ensuring the maintenance of minimum levels of activity of micro, small and medium-sized enterprises in the formal and informal sectors.
