The financial institution which stated the move was in fulfillment of its passion for women, indicated that the 5th edition of the NBC trade fair which held in Lagos on April 9 and 10, 2022 attracted thousands of shoppers and had over 200 promising entrepreneurs exhibit and increase sales on their products and services.

The scheme, which was created to ease the financial burden associated with accessing both local and international fertility treatments and natal support, was accessed by one of Access Bank’s customers last year—the result of which is a twin birth following a successful In-Vitro Fertilization (IVF) procedure in Port Harcourt. 

AAWEF is positioned to boost the participation of women as key contributors to Africa’s growth and development in science, technology and innovation, with an objective to build sustainable relationships between Africa and America through networking, education, trade and commerce for women entrepreneurs. This they have done for three years during the ZORA! Festival of Arts with a conference tagged the “AAWEF trade expo”. 

Group Head, Women Banking Team, Access Bank PLC, Abiodun Olubitan, described the event as a “crucial step to protecting women in Nigeria”. “Breast and cervical cancer are two of the most common forms of cancer that plague women in Nigeria’s health climate. Recognizing how important early diagnosis is to overall outcomes, we decided to organize this screening program as part of our commitment to continuously empower the Nigerian woman. We are optimistic that through this initiative and many more like it, there will be a marked improvement in the wellbeing of thousands of Nigerian women,” she said.
