Wema Bank

Ademola Adebise (M)


"Research has shown that women in Nigeria populate the small and medium scale sector, and given the impact of MSMEs on the growth of the economy, it has become a core part of our role as a bank to support and empower women. For this reason, we launched ‘SARA By Wema’ to give women the opportunity to grow, individually and financially, within a community that supports their needs. Our relationship with UN Women's Empowerment Principles Platform is a show of commitment from Wema Bank to continually provide opportunities and affiliate with initiatives that aid the growth of women, encourage their financial inclusion and increase equality in the society."
