The initiative, which was unveiled at the weekend, theplatform offers series of benefits to sit-at-home mothers, professionals and women-owned SMEs, by offering them a chance to grow and expand their wealth through partnership, relationship, access to finance, information, networking, mentoring and empowerment initiative.
A statement quoted the Chief Executive Officer of Skye Bank Plc, Timothy Oguntayo, as saying the Pearl product is a well-thought-out offering “conceived by women and birthed by women basically to cater for the needs of Nigerian women”.
According to him, Skye Pearl is a way of ensuring that its customers, especially the women customers enjoy fullness of our business.
He said: “The initiative is for our women, our Pearls, who own Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) as well as individual customers. They may be Professionals or Stay-at-home moms, or better still, women entrepreneurs who are seeking to unleash their potential but have not been empowered.
“Our research has shown that most of these ‘Pearls’ are simply waiting to access capital to show what they can do. They need dedicated financial and non-financial services support to bring out the latent power in them and Skye Bank is positioned to provide the platform for this”, Oguntayo said.
