Accion MfB empowers SMEs in Port Harcourt

Accion Microfinance Bank (MfB), a microfinance institution in Nigeria, has empowered Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) in Port Harcourt, Rivers State through its SME customer forum.

The forum, which took place last week, is part of the bank’s initiatives to promote financial inclusion and support entrepreneurship in Nigeria, according to a statement.

“It provided a platform for the SME customers to share their experiences, challenges, and insights, alongside networking with their peers, and the interactive sessions focused on crucial topics such as access to finance and business development, were tailored to address the unique needs and challenges faced by SMEs in Nigeria,” it said.

Taiwo Joda, managing director/CEO at Accion MfB, while giving his keynote address emphasised the significance of empowering entrepreneurs and small businesses.

“SMEs are the engine of economic growth, and we are dedicated to providing the necessary support and resources to help them thrive.”

He expressed the bank’s enthusiasm for hosting similar events in other states and sustaining their efforts to empower entrepreneurs and small businesses across Nigeria.
