The Parliamentary Candidate for the Ghana Union Movement (GUM), 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.
Ms. Penianah has appealed to the electorates to vote massively for GUM in the upcoming elections to change the face of politics in Ghana as well as for her as the member of parliament for the area, to implement the ideas of the party.
She observed that the youth in Ghana are lacking behind in terms of employment, and said the party under the leadership of Reverend Christian Kwabena Andrews, had put down measures to improve the livelihoods of the youth.
Ms. Penianah, said when given the nod as the parliamentary candidate, she would establish a fashion training school in the constituency to train the youth as a means of creating job opportunities.
The 46-year old businesswoman said GUM had a huge chance of winning the New Juaben South seat because both the NPP and NDC had failed the people.
