Addosser MFB empowers Women especially Widows on International Women’s Day

Addosser MFB hosted some of its female customers and widows from around its communities at its Ojuelegba branch to mark International Women’s Day on March 8th, 2021.

The event served as an opportunity to celebrate the achievements of our everyday women who have played extra-ordinary roles in their families and communities and reaffirm our commitment to the support and empowerment of women.

A focal part of this year’s program was to choose to challenge women to become financially independent and to cultivate a savings culture. The planned activities of the day ensured to have a capacity building program in helping women become financially independent through our savings and loan products.

Guests were educated on how they can benefit from the Addosser Future Target Savings (AFTA) product that allows them make daily, weekly or monthly contributions towards a particular future goal or to meet unforeseen circumstances in their families or business.

Widows can also benefit from the Widows Umbrella, a loan product targeted at widows to help support and sustain their businesses during a vulnerable period at a very affordable interest rate. Other activities centered on Health, Financial and Business Management.

Over the years, Addosser MFB has undoubtedly been an advocate of women empowerment and gender inclusion as it is evident through most of our initiatives and outreach programs.

Above all, the event was a huge success that ended with guests receiving food donations to support themselves and their families. They were very grateful and appreciative of the efforts put by the bank in helping them in times like this.
