According to him, the firm was set to partner with MSMEs in the Western part of Nigeria, by empowering them with low-interest loans and offering them advisory services to ensure they succeed in their business, and are able to repay the loans.

He said Chinmark was out to impact businesses across sectors, and was ready to partner with stakeholders in the whole agricultural value chain, as well as entrepreneurs to help mitigate the COVID-19 impact on the private sector.
