Mouka Limited, Nigeria’s leading foam maker, is set to reward female entrepreneurs in celebration of the 2021 mother’s day coming up in May.
The mattress maker rolled out the Mums in Business Challenge and has called for entries in which winners will be awarded cash grants for their ventures.
In May of 2019, Mouka ran a similar online competition, organised in partnership with AGS Tribe, a firm that provides entrepreneurs opportunities across Africa. Maryam Adebola-Salami, the founder of Mobaby Care Nigeria, emerged the winner and was presented with a cheque of US$1,000.
This year, the company is taking this initiative further by supporting three mum entrepreneurs. The first prize winner will go home with a cash grant of N500,000, the second prize winner with N300,000 and the third with N200,000. All winners will also go home with Mouka mattresses and pillows.
Tolu Olanipekun, Head of Marketing, Mouka foams, said the initiative is part of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) pillar themed skills for life, adding that it aims to encourage mums who are entrepreneurs in supporting their businesses as they handle the affairs of the home
“Mouka is a brand that genuinely cares for its consumers and is continuously looking for ways to add comfort to their lives through its products and initiatives as these. We see mums as the pillars that support the homes. They should be encouraged and supported to excel in their chosen fields of endeavor,” She explained.
The 2021 ‘Mums in Business Challenge’ is also being organised in conjunction with the AGS Tribe. Consumers are encouraged to visit Mouka’s social media handles for information on how to participate as well as terms and conditions.
Mouka is Nigeria’s leading brand of mattresses, pillows and other bedding products. Among its array of quality products are the Wellbeing Orthopaedic mattresses, Mondeo Plus spring mattress, Royal Luxury Pillow Top spring mattress and a variety of pillows.
