In a country where women were still actively side-lined, this coalition was birthed solely to improve the economic status of women which would ultimately improve their families and the country’s economy consequently.
WORK TOGETHER, WALK FAR
Encouraging and improving sustainable entrepreneurial development among women.
The ANWBN History
52 organizations with a common goal of encouraging and improving sustainable entrepreneurial development among Nigerian Women.
ANWBN is a Coalition of originally 18 Pioneer Primary Organizations, established in February 2013 under the auspices of the Centre For International Private Enterprise (CIPE). In July 2019, following the ANWBN Membership Sensitization Initiative, supported by CIPE, 28 new Women Business Organizations registered to become bonafide members. Presently the total membership is 52 organizations with a common goal of encouraging and improving sustainable entrepreneurial development among Nigerian Women through research, advocacy and policy reform initiatives.
ANWBN exists to enhance the economic status of women so as to ensure peaceful co-habitation, credible job creation and adequate infrastructural provision across the nation. Some of its other objectives are:
- Enhance democracy and good governance amongst its 70 member organizations.
- Strengthen the capacity of the individual membership to achieve entrepreneurship development.
- Be the driving force and provide solutions for women business development in Nigeria.
- Develop business and economic policy documents for submissions to, and discussions with, government agencies of Nigeria.
- Be a unifying voice to advocate effectively for professional and business women.
- Foster partnerships and alliances with business associations and the Nigerian government in relevant economic and socio-political matters.
Women's National Business Agenda
The Women Business Agenda is a critical tool we developed for the business community to attract investment, stimulate company activity, and economic growth for women.
ANWBN is a not-for-profit coalition that relies on partnerships, donations and sponsorships. This puts the organization at great risk without partners as inadequate funds and means of securing more funds to run its projects still remain huge threats and impediments to its growth. This is constantly addressed by leveraging on the relationships that have been created over the years to make things happen and also ensuring there is proper ideation and planning before venturing into a project.
There is also the need to continuously drive the message of unity and removal of bickering amongst members who come from different parts of the country with diverse experiences. This is usually addressed with proper and routine education of all members.
