The empowerment program was carried out in collaboration with the State Commissioner of women affairs and social development Barr. Amina Musa Gu’ar and the First Lady of Niger State Dr. Amina Abubakar.
Women irrespective of religion and tribe in Gurara LGA were financially empowered to enhance and help grow their businesses. Mrs Maimuna Dangana Duza stated in her speech that “women should utilize this opportunity with the little stipend given to them to build up their businesses and not to squander the stipend buying unnecessary items.”
She added that
“Instead of training or asking women to learn new skills, its better to encourage and support the skills they have already acquired over time so they can expand and do that with passion.“
