Bank & Entrepreneur Africa celebrates six months of Lady Vendor Project
Says Mrs. Chinyere Okafor, the magazine's lead vendor: "Since I started this business, I have learnt a lot from my supervisor, Ms. Anne Agbakoba. I now know how to sell to people and how to make my customers come back to buy my magazines. I have made a lot of money too, and I was able to take my mother to the hospital, pay her bills and buy the medication prescribed for her. My husband, my mother, my son – they are very proud of me."
According to the Publisher of Bank & Entrepreneur Africa, Ms. Anne Agbakoba, the Lady Vendor was established to help females from poor communities gain financial independence quickly, and become productive members of society.
The Lady Vendor project is designed to meet a few of the United Nations' Millennium Development Goals, which include poverty alleviation and gender empowerment. http://www.numeris-
