Several small businesses in the St. Mary’s North constituency will get a financial boost this weekend, as the United Progressive Party’s “Small Business Pull-up” makes its way there.
The tour will take place on Saturday, November 12, and the UPP train will leave the Jennings Primary School at 1 p.m. It will patronize a diverse array of small enterprises in Jennings, Bendals, Cashew Hill, Bathlodge and Browne’s Avenue.
Candidates will share the UPP’s “Small Business Agenda for Development and Growth” with vendors and patrons, as well.
Senator Johnathan Joseph, the UPP’s Candidate for St. Mary’s North, believes that small enterprises are at the core of every community.
He says he has witnessed, firsthand, the hard work, patience and dedication it takes to maintain a successful business. Therefore, he says it is important for the Party to support vendors and small entrepreneurs as they struggle to support their families and communities.
For many, their business is their primary source of income, Joseph adds, and the UPP is committed to helping them generate more sales and exposure.
In the meantime, with only four more events planned in this series, Joseph is urging everyone to come on board this Saturday.
It will be the 13th installment of the initiative, as the caravan of UPP supporters traverses the communities to support struggling small businesses.
Last Saturday, November 5, the event was held in St. John’s City East, hosted by UPP Candidate and Political Leader Harold Lovell.
