Flourish Africa awards N2 million to 100 female entrepreneurs.

 Flourish Africa, the women empowerment movement created by Apostle Folorunso Alakija, has awarded N2 million business awards to 100 female entrepreneurs from its N1 billion fund, which is designed to empower 2500 female entrepreneurs over the next five years.

Meanwhile, 500 female entrepreneurs have graduated from Flourish Africa’s ‘Business and Life Skills Training Programme,’ which was designed to provide business coaching and mentoring for female-owned Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs), with 100 of them receiving seed grants to help them grow their businesses.

Alakija stated at the Flourish Africa 5th Anniversary/Award Ceremony in Lagos that the platform was established to empower women who would empower other women, with the understanding that economic inequality was still a serious concern for women in Africa.

Mrs. Ndidi Nwuneli, co-founder of Sahel Consulting, stated in her keynote address that women hold the key to transforming not only Nigeria but the entire African continent, adding that it has become critical for women to rise above any stumbling block by venturing into uncharted territories to realise their God-given potentials.
