Bankly has teamed up with Sheevolution Africa, a non-profit organization focused on liberating young females in rural areas in the continent. The non-profit organization provides products on leadership development programs, and services to young girls, as well as entrepreneurial and computer skills, high-impact mentorship, and networking opportunities.
Sheevolution just debuted its “Girl Enterprise Day – Economic Empowerment for the African Girl” on Sunday the 4th of November this year; a creative event that marked the International Day of the Girl Child annually. The maiden event, hosted in partnership with Bankly, gives young females the knowledge of micro business grants, financial inclusion access, and business funding.
The event was aimed at providing the young women with the necessary equipment, mindset, and drive needed to achieve their business goals. Part of the event was a masterclass presentation by Tomi Majekodunmi, CEO of Bankly, and a discussion panel with other successful entrepreneurs.
Another outstanding happening at the event was the competition among over 25 young women from rural communities who had passed through the comprehensive development training, planning, and business conceptualization from Sheevolution Africa’s prestigious school, to pitch their business ideas.
Bankly gifted each participant a small micro-grant of N40,000 to aid their young entrepreneurial travel and enhance their socioeconomic paradigm shift. Jadesola James-Omitiran, Executive Director (E.D) of Shevolution Africa said, “We are delighted to have collaborated with Bankly to introduce ‘Girl Enterprise Day’ on this significant date.” “This event symbolizes our commitment to inspire and empower the next generation of female entrepreneurs in Africa, aligning perfectly with the mission of the International of the Girl Child to promote girls’ rights and empowerment.”
By empowering young girls from underserved communities to become economically independent, Sheevolution Africa and Bankly are contributing to the creation of a just and equitable world.
Bankly, a bank that is licensed by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), protected by the Nigeria Deposit Insurance Company (NDIC), and registered with the National Association of Microfinance Banks (NAMB); has been the choice for over 12 million people and companies in the country ever since it commenced operations in 2019, helping advance their financial growth with sensible financial solutions.
