What we do

to opportunities, finance, markets, network and community.


Our approach

Where we work

36 states of Nigeria and across sub-Saharan Africa.

Women and Girls tend to be more vulnerable to extreme poverty compared to Men. Many studies have also confirmed that in a global economic downturn, more women are significantly affected as more of them lose jobs and are forced to manage shrinking household income.

Women also have limited access to opportunities for business development, stereotyped by cultural and societal gender-based discriminations, coupled with balancing household and childcare responsibilities.
