Keystone Bank Women Economic Empowerment Committee (KWEEC) facilitated by Keystone Bank has given some women the opportunity to undergo metre installation training
This was made possible through a partnership with Momas Electricity Metres Manufacturing Company Limited (MEMMCOL).
The purpose of this training is to train and provide financial independence for young women in line with the directive of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) to commercial banks to support the empowerment of women in the country.
According to a statement issued by the bank, it was also stated that the scheme was in celebration of the 2022 International Women’s Day and in line with its commitment to empowering women in Nigeria.
Helen Maiyegun, the chairperson of KWEEC, stated, “We have been training women on skills acquisition such as catering, bead making, fashion design among others, but this time we decided to think outside the box and this brought about the partnership with MEMMCOL.
“When you empower a woman, you are empowering the nation and that is why the Keystone Bank Women Economic Empowerment Committee monitoring and evaluation team will continue to monitor the progress of these women to ensure that they put into practice what they have learned.”
The Chairperson further urged the trainees to be good ambassadors of Keystone Bank and Momas Metering School by utilising the training to better their lives and encourage other women within their communities.
Kola Balogun, the chairman of Momas commended Keystone Bank for supporting young women and engaging them positively
Ademola Olorunfemi, Chairman of the Academic Board, Momas Metring School, also praised Keystone Bank for providing a unique opportunity for young women, emphasising that the initiative will not only add value to their lives but to their families.
