Economic Inclusion

Gender inequality in Nigeria manifests in various forms, creating formidable barriers to women’s financial independence, economic empowerment, technological access, and health. In recognizing the profound impact of gender disparities on the overall well-being of women, HACEY has taken proactive measures to address these issues through targeted Economic Inclusion Programs.

Nigeria grapples with a significant gender gap in financial literacy, with only 24% of women equipped to navigate financial landscapes effectively, hindering their ability to save, invest, and manage risks. At HACEY, we understand that addressing financial inequality is not just an economic imperative but a pathway to empowering women across diverse aspects of their lives.

Extensive research and evidence from successful global financial inclusion programs underscore the intricate connection between women’s financial well-being, economic empowerment, and broader aspects such as health and education. Leveraging these insights, our Economic Inclusion Programs have been meticulously designed to equip women in Nigeria with the skills, knowledge, and resources necessary to generate income sustainably, manage their finances adeptly, and enhance their overall health.

Our integrated approach goes beyond conventional financial literacy initiatives; it delves into the root causes of poverty and inequality, aiming to create sustainable change. By addressing the multifaceted challenges faced by women, we strive to break down barriers and pave the way for a more inclusive and resilient economic system.

Through stakeholder consultations, in-depth desk reviews, and drawing on over 15 years of hands-on experience, we have refined our approach to economic inclusion. We prioritize not only addressing immediate economic challenges but also fostering an environment that nurtures the long-term financial well-being of women in Nigeria.

Our overarching goal is to reshape the economic landscape, making it more inclusive and resilient for women. Join us in our mission to dismantle barriers, empower women economically, and contribute to a more equitable and prosperous future for all. Explore the transformative impact of our programs as we continue to shape a society where women can thrive economically, thereby fostering a ripple effect of positive change across communities.
