“If you go to Ogbunike by Nkwelle Ezunaka junction, you begin to see industrial park, shoe manufacturing industrial cluster that was established by ASBA with over 1000 shops, having functional facilities to stand the test of time.

The above quote is from the MD of Anambra State Small Business Agency, ASBA, Mazi Clement Chukwuka.

According to him, Anambra State won an award as most supportive state for SMEs last year, and when aproached by a very impressed Federal Government to make a request over the award, the State Government wasted no time in asking for shoe making equipment to be imported and handed to it.

He says the Federal Government has already ordered the requested equipment.

Chukwuka also reveals in the link that the state is currently training 600 artisans in shoe and clothing manufacturing to make the scheme a success.
