In the second phase of its project, ‘Empowering Rural Women in Nigeria,’ Nestlé Nigeria has trained an additional 50 women.
The training, which took place last Thursday in Osogbo, brought together female retailers from Nestlé’s retail value chain.
According to Nestlé Nigeria’s management, the beneficiaries will receive grants equal to 300 percent of their monthly sales of the company’s products.
They will also take part in training and mentoring programs to help them grow their businesses and increase their household income.
“We are happy to fulfill our promise of expanding Nestlé empowering rural women in Nigeria to reach more women in other parts of Nigeria,” said Khaled Ramadan, Commercial Manager at Nestlé Nigeria. We are pleased with the progress made by the first 50 beneficiaries, who benefit from Nestlé and her implementation partners, FDC Consulting.
“They are reporting faster turnover, increased revenue, and better visibility of their outlets within their locations.”
As a result, we are confident that the 50 selected retailers in Southwest Nigeria will benefit fully from the assistance we are providing through training, mentorship, and grants.”
