Small Business Bureau signs MoU with 12 groups to train entrepreneurs
Twelve private training institutions have signed Memoranda of Understanding (MoU) with the Small Business Bureau (SBB) to train entrepreneurs.
GINA said this is being facilitated through the Micro and Small Enterprise Development programme (MSED).
The MoU will allow these institutions to train young entrepreneurs, who have benefitted from cash grants and loans through the SBB, in managing their own small businesses, GINA added.

The institutions which will facilitate the training are the Ruimveldt Life Improvement Centre, Generation Next, Roadside Baptist Church Skills Training Centre, Partners of the Americas, Kuru Kuru Co-operative College, Action Coach Guyana, Guyana School of Agriculture, EMPRETEC, Cerulean Inc, the Critchlow Labour College, Management Options and Interweave Solutions.
Minister of Business and Tourism, Dominic Gaskin encouraged the trainers to utilise modern technologies which would make the training relevant to the contemporary business environment.
GINA said that the MSED programme which began in 2013 has trained more than 1,000 young entrepreneurs who accessed small loans and grants through the SBB.
Officer in Charge of the bureau, Gillian Edwards-Griffith said, “We have done to date 193 grants, $300,000 each, and in terms of loans with financial partners, we have three, of which two are active giving a total of 63 loans”.
The MSED programme will be evaluated by an independent body to give the SBB a fair idea of the successes prior to the second phase of the training.
Funding will be evenly disbursed among the training institutions, GINA added.

Hypomania and Mania Symptoms in Bipolar Disorder #bipolar #disorder, #bipolar, #mania, #manic, #hypomania, #symptoms,
What Are Hypomania and Mania in Bipolar Disorder?
You probably already know that bipolar disorder can bring with it dramatic mood swings. You can go from the depths of depression to the racing thoughts, extreme energy, and wired feelings that doctors call “mania.”
But have you heard of “hypomania”? It’s a less severe form of mania. It actually may feel pretty good because your mood is up and you have more energy than usual, but it’s not out of control.
The problem is that for someone with bipolar disorder, hypomania can evolve into mania. Or it can switch to serious depression. And you can’t tell which one might happen, because the pattern isn’t predictable.
Is It Mania?
- Have lots of energy
- Feel high or wired
- Have racing thoughts
- Talk fast
- Take more risks
- Need less sleep than usual to feel rested
- Have more distractions than usual
- Have intense senses, such as smell and touch
Some people with bipolar disorder become psychotic when manic or depressed — for example, hearing things that aren’t there. They may hold onto false beliefs, too. In some instances, they see themselves as having superhuman skills and powers — even considering themselves to be god-like.
Keep in mind that you may not notice these things in yourself. It might be a friend or family member who notices the patterns. If symptoms last for a week or more and cause problems in your life, it may be mania.
