The names of those who are recipients of grants through the PRYME program will no longer be published.

The Minister of Finance Hon. Camillo Gonsalves said a decision was made to respect the confidentiality of awardees going forward.

“It’s that in the publication of the first 160 names, a number of recipients found themselves victim to some very vitriolic attacks on social media, on public airwaves and in their own villages for doing nothing more than applying for a grant and receiving support for their small business and their micro-enterprises.” Gonsalves said.

So far, 160 persons have been approved to receive grant funding under the programme which is meant to support small businesses in SVG.
