The Finance Minister said this while addressing the entrepreneurs at the inaugural function of the second phase of the Chief Minister's Entrepreneurship Development Programme (CMEDP 2.0), implemented by KFC.
The Minister also handed over loan sanction letters to entrepreneurs under the CMEDP and Startup Kerala schemes. The event also showcased a few innovative products from the Startups funded by the Corporation.
The CMEDP 2.0 which was announced by the State Government on the fifth of November this year, saw a high surge in the number of applications and so far, more than 130 loans have been sanctioned.
“The state envisages KFC to emerge as a financial supermarket assisting entrepreneurs at low-interest rates and easy terms. To consummate this, the Government will introduce new schemes and broaden the horizons of the Corporation’s activities”, the Finance Minister said.
