Youwin Grant is sure.. Don't mind him.

I personal wrote for a woman who was selected during the first youwin program.. But just that she and the husband mismanaged the Millions that was given to her.. They opens a small laboratory, bought a car and the rest of the cash was swept down.

I deeply think that Yowin should focus more on monitoring the activities of successful awardees. Because the rate at which the winners spend this money on unrelated stuff is actually what is making youwin to seem as fake.

Mr. There is so much money in the Federal Government account..

During the PDP régime, Youwin was done in a free and fear methods. Applicants was paid, just that many of them used the money for irrelevant things - Because they had this mindset that "It's part of our National Cake"

I strongly believe that APC will still disburse this funds to those with the perfect Business plan

Don't be biassed politically, let's give the new government a chance to change people's future for good.

There is always a grant at later end. Just that the training is meant to capture only those with strong motive to better the lives of others.

The grant is for those that want to better their own life's... While the training helps train you to train others - The Youwin ideology is to train you to train others in other to create employment opportunity, so as to out an end to unemployment and hunger in the face of so many Nigerians.

The funds for those who won before and met their tranche requirements have since been disbursed.
Any outstanding payments( by any error) are being processed from what i heard last.
However this New Youwin Connect Program is training only, No more grants

I support you on this, because APC lead government sometime last year rejected the Youwin ideology..

However, the reverse is the case, because they've seen that the social investment programs (Npower) is not going to impact the lives of many Nigerians..

Youwin is extremely for those with business mind.

Last time I checked, the Igobs and those middle belt won the award more; This is Because of the serious business ideology of the IGBO..

I was shocked when I heard of someone who actually got a 10,000000(10 million) Naira grant from Youwin by writing on Cassava Processing.

Don't be money conscious, get the required knowledge first. The orgnisers know the impact of mentioning prize monies. A lot of people will be there for the grant and in months time they won't have a business to show.

Only the serious entrepreneurs will take this advantge

Guy wake up from your deep dream
That was during the era of the truthful and fair-minded President GEJ who brought much progress to Nigeria and Nigerian entrepreneurs.

Times have changed,we're now in the era of the fraudulent certificate-less nomadic terrorist dullard Buhari.Who has brought untold hardship to millions of Nigerians and has succeeded in killing so many businesses and rendering so many jobless.
Dark hearted serpent called Buhari.
I spit on Buhari
