Summary short_text

The Parliamentary Candidate for the Ghana Union Movement, in the New Juaben South constituency, Ms. Petra Adwoa Penianah, has disclosed that GUM would focus on the welfare of women in the informal sector to improve their economic status.
Ms. Penianah, indicated that women formed the majority in the informal sector and GUM believed that when the needed attention is paid to the informal sector in the area of soft and accessible loans, it would impact on the socio-economic development.
Speaking in an interview with the GNA, she mentioned that when given the nod as the member of parliament, she would institute a loan scheme with moratoriums in the informal sector, explaining that the current trend where traders were given loan and made to pay in less than two months with huge interest, was rather collapsing a lot of small trading activities.
