LEAH Partners BOI to empower Kwara Women

Date: 2017-03-11

Wife of the Kwara state Governor and Founder of the LEAH Foundation, Dcns Omolewa Ahmed has reiterated that there cannot be sustainable development if the barriers which hold back women's development are not addressed.

Dcns Omolewa Ahmed stated this during an empowerment program for 250 women through LEAH Multi Purpose Coop in partnership with Bank of Industry.

She said women carry a disproportionate burden of unpaid care work yet have no access to resources like quality seeds, agriculture extension services as well as financial services which make women more productive.

Mrs. Omolewa implored beneficiaries of the micro credit facility from the 16 Local Government areas of the state that they have the responsibility to utilize the money and repay on time so that many more women can benefit.

About 250 women benefited from the loan scheme, receiving amounts up to N100,000 and repayable within 6 months.

There were goodwill messages from Chairman Kwara state House Committee on Women Affairs, Hajia Aisha Ibrahim, and COO of Kwara MSME Bureau, Mr Segun Soewu among others .
