We consider women to be the backbone of society and the gender most likely to pay back handsomely to the community when properly supported. The CFI.co judging panel said that 'We focus in supporting female entrepeneurs and we work very well in partnership with local businesswomen'.
We have extended $50 million in loans to female clients and we consider this business segment with high importance. The majority of our employees are female and we have established our Women in Banking Club and also a Women Enterprise Fund. Additionally we have supported the Stand Up for African Mothers programme
