“Over 500 women including food vendors, retail provision sellers, and farm produce traders became beneficiaries of the Market Women Support Fund – MWSF powered by the Strategic Outreach Support in partnership with Zenith Bank.

“The capital funding exercise which is ongoing and would cover every local government area of the federation, saw a very large turnout of women and women trade associations in Dutse/Bwari, started with an account registration exercise facilitated by zenith bank. Over 500 unbanked women had new accounts opened and credited with the sum of N10,000 naira – funding made available by Strategic Outreach Support,” part of the statement read.
