Controversial preacher Passion Java and Zimbabwe Youth Presidential Support Organisation president, Tempter Paul Tungwarara, have pledged to offer loans to youths who come up with viable business plans.
The duo made the promise on Monday at a private club where Java donated belated Christmas gifts to the elderly, orphans and the vulnerable.
They said the loans will range from US$500 to US$3 000 and beneficiaries will be expected to repay the loans within six months.
Chitungwiza, Java’s home town, is set to be the first to benefit, next year, before the programme cascades to the rest of the country. Said Tungwarara:
The program will target all the youths, vendors, miners and all professionals and experts engaged in commodity selling in all parts of Zimbabwe.
Java said though he is a prophet, he believes in the vision of President Emmerson Mnangagwa of youth empowerment. Said Java:
I am not a politician but I believe in the vision of President Mnangagwa of supporting and empowering youths and so as a socialite and influential prophet, I will support him with my resources.
Youths who want the loans can get in touch with Java and Tungwarara via their Instagram page or WhatsApp them on the number appearing on their Instagram page, passion java records.
