CEM REPORT, SME | The Commissioner for Finance in Ondo State, Hon. Wale Akinterinwa has commended the CEO of Phummy Finesse Beauty Saloon, Funmi Olaniyi for her contribution to the beauty industry in Lagos State.
The Commissioner made the commendation on Sunday as a guest at the opening of another branch of the Phummy Finesse Beauty Saloon at the Marshyhill Estate, Ajah.
Hon. Akinterinwa, in an interaction with CEM Television, spoke specifically on the impact such businesses such as that of Funmi is making on the SME sector and the labour market through employment creation.
“This is a very good example of SME which should be encouraged, that instead of waiting for white-collar jobs, people should endeavor to acquire skills that they can actually use to render services like this. From what am looking at here, there are over 10 to 12 staff working here. If we have a lot of people like that who set up businesses that can take 10 to 12 people out of the labour market, I think we are on the path to greatness”; Akinterinwa said.

He said, “There must be an avenue to get the right kind of funding to set up this kind of businesses. Even if you have all the skills, you still need funding. The private sector should look at finding way to ensure that the right kind of funding at the right price should be made available.”
