Few weeks ago, I was invited by the Yinka Esther Odumakinde (YEO) Foundation alongside Mrs. Tomi Somefun, MD of Unity Bank and Mrs.Yimika Adeboye, Finance and Strategy Director of Cadbury to speak to about 250 Women who run #SMEs in different parts of Nigeria about Branding and Growth Strategies for their Business Ventures.
I shared my thoughts in both Yoruba and Pidgin English and during my Presentation, I noticed that a number of them were Widows, some Single Mothers and many of them are Breadwinners of their Families.
The Foundation spent over N10Million Naira empowering the women with Capital to start and grow their Businesses. They will also be getting Post Funding Mentoring and Workshops set up to reach them how to register their Businesses formally with the CAC etc.
To cheer them up after my Session, we decided to dance and do some turn up for Jesus.
Please rate my dancing skills on a scale of 1 to 10.
FACT: By the way, there are about 84 Million SMEs in Nigeria and about 50% of them are run by Women.
My Sister, Okocha Nkem Christiana will like this kind of thing.
