NFNV- Nigeria’s Northern women economic summit holds 28th November

The Nigeria chapter of New Faces, New Voices (NFNV Nigeria) is set to hold its first-ever Northern Women Economic Empowerment Summit on the 28th of November 2021 in Kano,  focused on exploring the prospects of job creation while seeking solutions to economic setbacks for women-owned businesses in North-Western Nigeria.

The summit is themed: “Empowering Women entrepreneurs: A panacea for poverty reduction and job creation in North-West Nigeria” and will consequently prepare women entrepreneurs with the skills to face post-Covid-19 challenges in running their enterprises.

New Faces New Voices (NFNV) is a pan-African women in finance network under the Graça Machel Trust (GMT) focused on stimulating changes in the financial sector so as to ensure women are empowered to contribute to an essential shift in the business and financial landscape across the African continent.

Thus, NFNV believes if women are given 30% representation in politics, most of their aspirations would be enhanced to a greater level, including business empowerment. To this end, the northern women economic summit seeks to facilitate women’s access to credits, business and other financial support for the restoration and development of their enterprises, in the post-Covid-19 period.

Subsequently, NFNV Nigeria say participants would be exposed to various economic opportunities available in the North-Western region in a bid to increase the potentials of women in the geo-political zone. Among others, the entrepreneurial capacity of rural women would be enhanced for advanced business transactions through integration into the digital world for vast business opportunities.

NFNV Nigeria is keen on engaging key stakeholders in Nigeria and across the West African sub-region on increasing women’s access to finance by enhancing opportunities for networking, exchange of information, as well as building a consensus to empower women in the financial sector amongst other priorities, so as to boost their inclusion in leadership of the financial sector.
