Somalia: Somaliland Business Fund extends grants deadline
The Somaliland Business Fund has extended the deadline for Round 1 application grants to 31 October 2012.
This came in wake of an article published in Raxanreeb on inadequacies in the criteria and translation of the fund literature into Somali. The SBF published an upadate on its page in Somali.
“Do you have a problem with [ filling out ] the application form? If you cannot write in English well or if you don’t have a computer, please phone us on 485-0660,” read the note in Somali on SBF website.
This is in response to a question raised by a raxanreeb.com contributor on what help non-English-speaking female horticultural sellers can get to be able fill out forms. Other issues raised in the raxanreeb.com article included mistranslation and inclusion of inaccurate information in the target language leaflets.
