Women empowerment forms a core impact objective at GroFin that focuses on small and growing businesses in vital needs sectors such as education, healthcare, agri-business, manufacturing, and key services to help women entrepreneurs make a difference in their communities. GroFin’s mission is aligned with the achievement of the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goal 5 (Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls) through its focus on women-led businesses and women employment. As at December 2018, GroFin has supported over 122 women-owned businesses and 30% of jobs that we sustain are held by women. In partnership with Sheba Centre, we will be hosting the “Breaking The Myth” series for a community of women entrepreneurs who, in the course of these events, will garner more knowledge on sustaining their business, having proper structure in place as well as implementing the right strategies for business growth.
Venue: Sheba Centre, Maryland, Lagos.
Date: June 20, 2019.
