Citi Awards 07 generates huge response

Citi Microentrepreneurship Awards (CMA) 2007, a programme to recognize and promote microentrepreneurs and microfinance institutions, received tremendous response from all corners of the country, says a press release.
Despite natural calamities like floods and cyclone Sidr, since CMA 2007 was announced, around 500 applications were submitted from all over the country.
Sponsored by Citi Foundation for the third consecutive year, the CMA 2007 is jointly organised by Citibank NA and Shakti Foundation for Disadvantage Women.
The preliminary assessment of the applications was completed by a screening committee to shortlist candidates. Sixteen expert teams from Shakti Foundation conducted field visits across Bangladesh to verify information of the short listed applicants in all 4 categories. The winners were selected yesterday through the Advisory Council Meeting at Dhaka Sheraton Hotel.
The grand award giving ceremony will be held on January 19, 2008 at The Winter Garden, Dhaka Sheraton Hotel.
