12 February 2019

His Majesty King Mswati III has encouraged the youth of Eswatini to make use of the Youth Enterprise Revolving Fund.

The YERF, a Public Enterprise under the Ministry of Sports, Culture and Youth Affairs, is an initiative that helps the youth of Eswatini to start up businesses by giving out loans to qualifying entrepreneurs. Speaking during the official opening of the first session of the 11th Parliament on Friday, 08 February, His Majesty urged the youth of the country to make use of the facility.

“The Youth remain the cornerstone of Eswatini’s development and economic growth as they continue to represent the highest percentage of our national population statistics. As they face more challenges, we will require a comprehensive, coordinated and multi-sectoral response in creating an enabling environment for youth development. We encourage the youth to take advantage of the Youth enterprise Revolving Fund, which is aimed at empowering them and guaranteeing financial inclusion. This will ensure our youth are engaged in meaningful activities that keep them away from destroying their lives at an early stage,” His Majesty said.

His Majesty further encouraged the business community and the country’s development partners to avail more opportunities to the youth of Eswatini.
