No fewer than 400 entrepreneurs gathered at the capacity building workshop organised by Stanbic IBTC Bank for its clients in a renewed focus of financial brands on the Small and Medium Scale Enterprises (SMEs) sector.

The two-day seminar, held in Lagos recently aimed at equipping SME operators with financial, marketing and management skills that they could readily deploy to transform their businesses and grow their bottom lines.

“The SME sector is pivotal to the economic growth and development of any nation and Nigeria is no exception, which is why the seminar was conceived to avail SME operators exposure to modern and innovative marketing, financial and management skills that are useful to their businesses and which will help them to attract the necessary funding for growth,” said Obinnia Abajue, Stanbic Bank’s Executive Director, Personal and Business Banking.

Abajue, who was represented by the Head of Business Banking, Stanbic IBTC Bank, Lloyd Onaghinon, stated that Stanbic IBTC Bank, backed by the rich heritage and know-how of the Standard Bank Group, is committed to building a strong SME base in Nigeria.

“Stanbic IBTC Bank has a rich pedigree of building capacity for SMEs and providing much-needed support in terms of funding and skills acquisition because we understand the important linkages provided by SMEs to industries and employment generation. This seminar is one of several ways the bank continues to build capacity in the SME sector,” Abajue said.
