Wema Bank trains SMEs on management

Wema Bank says its maiden SMEs Business School has equipped Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises with basic management knowledge.

It said the five-day training programme was held in Lagos, and featured 50 participants.

According to the bank, the beneficiaries were trained in relevant aspects of business that will help them effectively run their businesses and respond to challenges in the dynamic business environment.

It said the beneficiaries were trained using a robust curriculum spanning finance, marketing and sales, leadership, technology, branding, strategy, innovation and business transformation with highly qualified trainers.

The Head, Small and Medium Enterprises, Wema Bank, Arthur Nkemeh, said, “For us, it is not just about our customers. It is about our passion in supporting and developing SMEs, creating employment, and impacting the economy.

“SMEs consist of about 90 per cent of the businesses in the country and they are the highest employer of labour. If we continue to support MSMEs to grow their businesses and scale, they will create more employment and impact the entire ecosystem.”

He said the training affirmed the bank’s commitment and passion for MSMEs that it had supported over the years.

“So, we are trying to help SMEs to scale and learn better ways of doing their business with top-notch consultants from within and outside Nigeria.

“Part of our curriculum speaks to leadership, finance, marketing, business management, innovation, business transformation, and strategy.”
