She said each of the selected women was given N25,000 cash gift to support and expand their petty trades.

She added that “this initiative was birthed to help get indigent women who may have been affected by COVID-19to get back to their businesses and sustain their livelihoods.

“Through this initiative, we have been able to empower a total of 55 amazing and powerful women who are willingto take their businesses to the next level.”

The AOAF founder thanked AHF for the role it played, alongside other support in making the empowerment programmea reality, saying “AHF had remained a mentor in this direction.”

Steve Aborisade

Mr Steve Aborisade, the Advocacy and Marketing Manager of AHF-Nigeria, said the group always thrived on partnershipwith Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) and Community-Based Organisations (CBOs) in supporting their works withgrants, capacity building and mentoring.

Aborisade said the foundation also works toward reaching local communities with various interventions.

According to him, the indigent women selected are from a large pool of women across different communities that the foundationhad worked with in the FCT.

Some of the communities include: Gosa, Gwagwalada, Waru, Alieta, Kuje, among others.

He said “some of the women are bread winners of their families, struggling to meet up with their daily needs through their petty businesses.

“The N25,000 given to each of them will go a long way in their businesses, it may not look big but it is very significant to them.

“The key criteria for their selection is the will to survive in spite of the challenges they face, they believe that they must have somethingdoing like a trade and must have demonstrated the will to multiply wealth.”
