We’re Supporting Women to Unleash Their Potential—Ecobank MD

Managing Director of Ecobank Nigeria, Mr Patrick Akinwuntan, has explained that the Ecobank Female Entrepreneurs Initiative is a platform designed to recognise women as special and unique customers who require tailor-made service offerings.

The Ecobank Managing Director, who was speaking in Lagos, reiterated that the concept was designed to provide women with the necessary support to help them excel in their endeavours, promote and grow their businesses and generally position them for increased participation, validation and contribution within the society.

According to Mr Akinwuntan, “Increasingly, we are seeing the change in the attitudes of women, and their economic viability as individuals and leaders in their fields. Their banking and financial services as a whole therefore present vast opportunities, if properly understood and managed.”

In addition, the top banker said the launch was a charge to the society to challenge the status quo and strive for a balance by empowering females in their immediate environments and subsequently, on a macro level.
