SBE: FEF Calls for Donations to Aid Beneficiaries Amidst Rising Inflation and Cost of Living

The Frugal Empowerment Foundation (FEF) is making an urgent appeal for donations to support the beneficiaries of its Small Business Empowerment (SBE) program. As inflation and the cost of living continue to surge, many small business owners, particularly widows and other vulnerable groups, are struggling to sustain their enterprises.

The SBE program has been instrumental in providing initial seed funding to various entrepreneurs, enabling them to start and grow their businesses. However, the recent economic downturn has significantly impacted their ability to maintain profitability and expand their operations. Many beneficiaries have reported challenges in managing the rising costs of goods and services, which threaten the sustainability of their businesses.

Grace Ojiji, FEF Secretary, recently visited several SBE beneficiaries to assess their current situations. Among those visited was Ebere, who operates an open shop in Lugbe. Ebere expressed her difficulties in coping with daily price hikes, which have made it challenging to maximize profits and increase sales. She emphasized the need for additional capital to weather the economic storm and stay in business.

The Frugal Empowerment Foundation is therefore appealing to kind-hearted individuals, organizations, and philanthropists to donate and support these small business owners. Contributions can be made directly on the FEF website at, where detailed profiles of the beneficiaries and their progress are available.
