Meet Nigeria Based Fashion Designer Funmilayo Adebomi who shares her Entrepreneurial Journey

One estimate is that 40% of Nigerian women are entrepreneurs. This fits into a pattern in sub-Saharan Africa which has the highest female entrepreneurship rate globally.

Female entrepreneurship is vital for our future. Collectively we can make a change by closing the gap between men and women in the workforce.

Entrepreneurs are those adventurous, daredevils who drive deep into the pressing problems of society and try to find solutions to them, not by leaving the responsibilities in the reins of the government or business, but by trying to change systems as a whole and persuading societies to take new initiatives.
