First Bank of Nigeria — Nigerian bank introduces account designed to support women in business

The best kind of empowerment? When you empower the traditionally unempowered. One way? Supercharge female entrepreneurs in emerging markets.

In November 2016, First Bank of Nigeria launched an account dedicated to women in business. Featuring current and savings options, FirstGem for Women also offers leadership training programs and business development services, including advisory services on wealth management and investment plans. The account also includes annual medical and health programs and invitations to events for women sponsored by the bank.
