Minister praises Friendly Society on Agribusiness project

“Despite the current economic challenges, I have observed from your Reports that there was an increase in your membership by 197 persons in 2016, the largest increase in an annual membership of the Society in history. This my brothers and sisters not only represents growth and success for your Society, but attests to the outward approach that Takaaful Friendly Society has adopted to achieve it objectives to stay ahead of other financial institutions.” These were the words of encouragement by Senator the Honourable Jennifer Baptiste-Primus speaking at the Takaaful’ s 19th AGM held at the Amphitheatre of the Bureau of Standards, Macoya Industrial Estate on Sunday, April 23rd  last.


She encouraged the Friendly Society, “Your mission though simple is reflective of the importance of being your brother's keeper, which is very crucial at this time in our country. Your members are able to access funeral grants, housing grants, purchase of land, investments and charitable trusts for the needy.”


The Minister of Labour and Small Enterprise Development added, “I must also note that I am quite impressed that your society has started the Farm Project at Todd's Road in which you are cultivating ochroes. This would create employment, promote entrepreneurship and lend to the advancement of agribusiness through the small scale production of this product. Our youth need increased encouragement to be involved in these types of projects, because as a nation we have shifted from the soil to the shelves. So I am throwing out this challenge to your Society going forward.”


In conclusion, the Minister appealed to the members, “To continue to be creative in the rebranding of your products and services. Continue to develop strategies for the better management of your operating systems. Continue to be innovative when creating public awareness.”
