Following the launch of the Promoting Youth Micro Enterprises (PRYME) Programme on Tuesday, March 17, 2020 – spearheaded by the Minister of Finance, Economic Planning, Sustainable Development and Information Technology Hon. Camillo Gonsalves – the Government of St. Vincent and the Grenadines is inviting Vincentian business owners between the ages of 18 – 40 years old to apply for the grant.
A fund of EC$2 million will be disbursed to successful applicants over the period of one calendar year, with each applicant being able to apply for up to $40,000. PRYME is open to persons who have new and already existing businesses – and is aimed at individuals who may not otherwise qualify for traditional methods of financing.
