Tamkeen is supporting the private sector by off-setting the impact of the global spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) through the Business Continuity Support Programme.
The support programme will be providing financial grants to adversely affected small and micro enterprises to help them cover their operating expenses.
The Chairman of Labour Fund Tamkeen, Shaikh Mohammed bin Essa Al Khalifa, noted that Tamkeen has begun disbursing the first installment of the financial support to small and micro enterprises following the successful evaluation of their applications.
He added that Tamkeen has received more than 17,000 applications for the Business Continuity Support Programme in the span of two weeks.
The financial grants will continue to be disbursed over the next period until all requests are completed.
