Another edition in the Business series workshop organised by the United Bank for Africa (UBA) Plc, holds at the Bank’s Marine Head office, Lagos.
“Financial fitness: Balancing health and wealth for small business owners.’
UBA’s Head, SME Banking, Babatunde Ajayi, said with the vast experience of the panelists that would grace the event, the series will yield the intended result of pointing small business owners in the direction that will help galvanise their brands and position it in such a way as to attract the right customers.
Ajayi pointed out that UBA’s unending commitment and deep passion to help small businesses, which according to him, remains the engine of any developing economy.
Group Head, Marketing and Corporate Communications, Alero Ladipo, said the bank’s passion is hinged on ensuring that customers and entrepreneurs run businesses that can stand the test of time with the requisite knowledge and experience required to take their businesses to the next level.
She further emphasised UBA’s commitment and deep passion for small businesses, which according to her, remains the engine of any developing economy, adding: “We know small businesses are the backbone of the economy in every country of the world.”
In many climes, businesses with fewer than 100 employees account for 98.2 per cent of all businesses. This no doubt captures the importance of SMEs to a thriving economy which is why UBA is committed to seeing them flourish,” she said.
