Member News: Ecobank Speaks on Their Female Entrepreneurs Initiative
SME Finance Forum member Ecobank recently shared information about their Female Entrepreneurs Initiative.
Managing Director Ecobank Nigeria, Patrick Akinwuntan said, “Increasingly, we are seeing the change in the attitudes of women, and their economic viability as individuals and leaders in their fields. Their banking and financial services as a whole therefore present vast opportunities, if properly understood and managed.”
“Our female customers will become our flagship ambassadors and we have created this platform for them in line with the sustainability requirements of the Central Bank of Nigeria. These women will be provided with free health checks, training and empowerment sessions and other support tools from Ecobank. The Ecobank Female Entrepreneurs Initiative aims at empowering women by helping them build capacity to grow their businesses,” Akinwuntan continued.
