Union Bank recently organized an empowerment programme for some women entrepreneurs in Lagos as part of initiatives under its Small and Medium Enterprises (SME) business advisory programme.
The seminar tagged ‘Breaking Barriers – Women in Business’ was programmed to provide Union Bank’s female SME customers with practical guides on how to surmount typical challenges faced by small businesses in Nigeria with a particular focus on business law, accounting, and online marketing.
It is on record that the management of Union Bank frequently organize the seminar as part of its business advisory service and this recently held edition was meant for female entrepreneurs to celebrate the International Women’s Day (IWD).
In the words of Union Bank’s Head of Retail Segments, Paul Aseme, he said “We recognize that Nigerian SMEs face many challenges– especially during the start-up stage of the business. We are therefore organizing these seminars, bringing in accomplished entrepreneurs and professionals to share expert advice that will help these female business owners establish a good foundation for their businesses, widen their exposure and expand their business connections.
