In furtherance of its commitment to empower female entrepreneurs across Nigeria, Access Bank has extended its Womenpreneur Business Workshop to Kaduna State.
To give the women in Kaduna, professional business capacity-building experience, Access Bank’s W Academy partnered with the Enterprise Development Centre (EDC); the Entrepreneurship arm of Lagos Business School to drive this workshop.
In its fifth edition, the Womenpreneur Business Workshop is one of the flagship trainings of the W Academy under the bank’s W Initiative, designed to address the lack of access to entrepreneurial skills, finance, networking, and management skills, which are the key barriers to women’s economic inclusion.
Speaking on the purpose of the workshop, Group Head, Inclusive Banking of Access Bank Plc, Mrs Ope Wemi-Jones said, “Since 2006, the bank has continued in its commitment to drive women’s economic empowerment in the nation. The Womenpreneur Business Workshop is intended to educate and enlighten Nigerian women on the fundamentals in business which will eventually help them attain their full potentials”.
So far, business women in Lagos, Port Harcourt, Ibadan and Abuja have benefitted immensely from the workshop with over 1,200 female entrepreneurs testifying to have increased their business network, improved their business model and are thriving through the economic constraints with ease.
