Njie who established Digi Movement and another business entity in Kainfing, said both businesses are designed to create employment, thereby contributing to the productive sector of The Gambia.
He implored young people to believe in themselves and engage themselves into something meaningful, instead of sitting at ‘ghettos’ drinking ‘attaya’ the whole day.
“I started business at an early age and am still making my way through business. I think the youth should start investing in business no matter how small is their starting capital.”
However, the business environment, he observed, needs support especially in accessing loans and grants for young entrepreneurs to upgrade their businesses.
“Entrepreneurs need to be supported because is a highly dynamic technique for developing incremental income and customising things of value. In common practice, the entrepreneurs are considered as motivated people who have necessary courage for achieving their desired goals. So with this courageous mindset, government needs to support us and reduce the high tax meted on us.”
The young entrepreneur equally urged his fellow businessmen to be trustworthy and work for the best interest of their clients.
