Hello Mr. Romi Necie,

I hope everything is fine with you?

I was appointed to lead the World Bank Group for the second time.

In doing so, I and the Executive Board have established a Platform that consists of offering GRANT to individuals and corporate agencies.

The GRANT in question is intended to promote Humanitarian Well-Being as well as to establish lucrative businesses.

Our main objectives are that dedicated, willing and committed people and agencies offer independent help to the underprivileged in our local communities and also, the provision of employment opportunities and other social infrastructure that ordinary people lack.

To proceed, I have attached a form in this email.

Kindly review the attached file. Print, complete, sign and return a scanned copy with a valid copy of your ID (international passport, driver's license or national ID).

If you need more clarifications, do not hesitate to contact me.

I wish you a blessed day!

Best regards

Jim Yong-kim

President, WBG
