Experts Harp on Restructuring of Loans to Benefit Women

Experts have called for the restructuring of loan facilities in Nigeria, to alleviate the adverse effects of some government policies on women, who own micro-businesses with cash flow problems.

They noted that a significant number of women are still financially excluded, as they generally earn less than men, and as a result, are closer to the poverty line, adding that the COVID-19 pandemic has further worsened the situation. They made the assertion during a recent webinar on: “The Impact of COVID-19 on Women at the Bottom of The Pyramid,” while urging the government and private sector to enable low-income women to survive and thrive now and post-pandemic.
