The Coca-Cola Foundation, Leading Ladies Africa to Empower 1000 Female Entrepreneurs

As part of sustained efforts to empower female entrepreneurs in Nigeria, the Coca-Cola Foundation has awarded a grant to Leading Ladies Africa, a women-focused non-profit to train, fund, and upskill 1000 women, through its Enterprise and Leadership Programme (ELP).

The Enterprise and Leadership Programme (ELP) is a practical, hands-on programme that enables women entrepreneurs in Nigeria to set up viable small business enterprises that are designed to convert opportunities within their communities.

The programme seeks to solve the problem of economic insecurity and injustice towards women in Nigeria — encouraging sustainable work and economic growth for them by helping Nigerian female entrepreneurs build & maintain sustainable businesses.
