The Federation of Muslim Women Associations of Nigeria (FOMWAN) trained 30 women in business skills and entrepreneurship development in Bauchi State.
Mrs. Fatima Abubakar, FOMWAN Youth Officer, said so during the inauguration of a one-day training exercise on Tuesday in Bauchi.
She said the exercise was designed to expose participants to business and entrepreneurship development to encourage the growth of small and medium enterprises (SMEs) at the grassroots.
The exercise, she said, also aimed to educate participants on accounting, access to loans, financial strategies, sole proprietorship, among others.
“Women need to be aware of market creation strategies to enable them to stay in business,” she said, and urged participants to drop out of training in their communities.
In her remarks, Zainab Galla, Deputy Secretary of FOMWAN, said the exercise focused on empowering women, encouraging entrepreneurship development and financial independence.
Furthermore, Ms. Hauwa Usman, a participant, praised the gesture, adding that it would enable women to develop their entrepreneurial skills for self-reliance.
