Bank supports women empowerment programme
HERITAGE Bank Limited has supported women entrepreneurs through an empowerment programme called “Becoming Financially Fearless”.
Organised by the Genevieve Gathering, the initiative is a programme sponsored by the financial institution as part of its commitment to women empowerment in Africa with special focus on Nigeria.
The Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer, Heritage Bank, Ifie Sekibo, said: “Heritage Bank recognizes the importance of women in the society, especially in the economy, and this informs its commitment to women empowerment. Our mission is to help women succeed in business and in life.
“We believe that with the right motivation and resources, more women in Africa and in Nigeria can achieve the enviable success that many women across the world have achieved. At Heritage Bank, we have committed ourselves to providing these capacity and resources to empower and motivate women across the country.”
‘Becoming Financially Fearless’, according to the bank, was informed by the need to advance the Nigerian woman’s confidence and also teach her to find a balance between living the life she wants and securing her financial future.
It is aimed at empowering women by helping them tackle the business and personal finance issues that are specific to them, including providing an opportunity for entrepreneurs, women in business and career-oriented people to benefit from presentations by experts in selected fields.
