Support call for campaign

Have your say

Sheffield Scuba diving specialists Diveworld have joined calls for overseas aid to be targeted to help small businesses grow in developing countries.

Louise Kiyani, manager of the Hillsborough firm, sent a card to Andrew Mitchell MP, minister for international development, pressing for more carefully targeted aid.

She said: “In some poorer countries, small businesses are the backbone of the national economy. A healthy economy brings greater stability, better developments for self-sustainability and a means for people to work their own way out of poverty.”

The company is urging the public to back a campaign by overseas aid organisation CAFOD to promote small businesses.
