Constructive Solutions Inc. is coordinating this initiative in partnership with the Cooperative Division in the Ministry of National Mobilization, and Regional Partner the Caribbean Centre of Excellence for Sustainable Livelihoods (COESL) through its award winning program ‘Biz-Hub’ to set up this very critical Micro Finance Facility at a time when our local economy is in need of more Sustainable Livelihoods Development through Entrepreneurship.

“Entrepreneurs with Startup Businesses and other Small and Micro Enterprises in St Vincent and the Grenadines need to unite, we do not have a choice or we will be left behind and stuck in what they call poverty. To effect a business economically, socially and environmentally, we must eventually face the fact that we must pool our money, time, and resources in order for us to begin the process of freeing ourselves economically and gaining a better quality of life, through sustainable development.

“This multipurpose Cooperative Society is an organized and regulated way in which it can be done, when we come together, believe it, the world will take notice and our present situations will change for the better,” said Ashley John, Executive Director of CSI.
