She stated that there is a chronic funding mismatch between impactful businesses (including small businesses owned and managed by women) looking for growth finance, and investors decrying the lack of bankable opportunities in frontier markets.

She added that the role of women in Nigeria’s socio-economic development cannot be overemphasized, hence women need to prioritize financial education and investing to salvage their financial future.

Promoting gender equality has been considered a great economic game-changer by the International Monetary Fund (IMF). Women accounted for 36% of the 38.6% (38.6 million) financially excluded Nigerians according to the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) and EFInA 2020 report on women’s financial inclusion. It is believed that to tackle the financial inclusion gap in Nigeria, the challenge of gender inequality must be addressed.

The IMF’s latest economic review of Nigeria’s economy further supported that closing the gender gap would mean higher growth and productivity, and greater economic stability.

The event promises to be educative, informative, and enriching for intending participants. For more information, please visit Welcome!
