Ecobank Nigeria is set for the launch of “Ellevate”, a bespoke women empowerment proposition targeted at empowering women-owned and women-focused businesses in Nigeria.
According to the bank’s Executive Director, commercial Banking, Carol Oyedeji, the initiative, which is scheduled for launch on July 7, 2021, in Lagos is specially designed for women in business, and businesses with a high percentage of female executives or employees.
The programme also targets manufacturers of products used by women. Ellevate is an initiative of the Ecobank Group which is being launched in the 33 African countries where it operates.
Its launch underscores the bank’s commitment to empowering women by providing the platforms and opportunities for them to thrive.
“Ecobank understands that women’s needs are unique and has put in place the appropriate resources to meet those needs.
“With Ellevate, we recognise and acknowledge the critical role of women in the society. Ellevate offers women-owned businesses a wide-reaching suite of solutions, incorporating smarter money management, discounted financing, and value-added services to deliver, that female entrepreneurs need at the right time.
