They came, they slayed, they conquered!

One Woman, in partnership with networking platform, Her Network, recently hosted a special group of female entrepreneurs at the maiden edition of its Lunch With One Woman event.  Notable guest speakers included Uche Pedro, Founder of Bella Naija, Bukky Asehinde, Founder/CEO, Bellafricana and Toyin Onigbanjo, Founder, August Secrets. The three ladies were celebrated as nominees of the Woman of the Year in Entrepreneurship category, sponsored by Sterling Bank.

One Woman is a proposition by Sterling Bank Plc for women designed to cater to the unique needs of women. The platform seeks to support women from all walks of life and diverse economic backgrounds through finance schemes, empowermentbusiness workshops/academy, lifestyle nuggets, personal support, healthcare etc.

This is the first of many quarterly Lunch With One Woman events. View photo highlights below!

Last week, we asked you and other members of our community to help five lady bosses win free seats at the upcoming Sterling MSME Academy training in Kano. And you did, in a mindblowing way. Over 500 nominations were received, with businesses from a unique range of fields.

A big thank you to everyone who voted, and hats off to our incredible nominees.

Without further adieu, we present the list of winners who will be attending the training…


In support of Sterling Bank’s exciting One Woman value proposition, a select number of Nigerian women were taught to take action, make positive choices about their own lives and do positive things for others at the Sheraton Hotel in Lagos.

These and many more positive outcomes were the bank’s expectations from the programme entitled, “Sexually Confident Woman”. The theme of the one-day programme organised by Tope Mark-Odigie was “Self-Love”.

A-list speakers and panellists at the programme included Mrs. Ifeyinwa Ighodalo, CEO, Design Options, Mrs. Mojisola Bakara, General Manager, Corporate Banking, Sterling Bank, Ms. Kate Henshaw, Nollywood Actor and Izefua Ehi-Williams, a prominent life coach. Others were Dr. Maymunah Kadiri, a clinical psychologist, Barrister Orbby Agwuncha, a sexologist and Beecee Ugboh, a gospel hip-hop artiste.


The Sterling MSME Academy was established three years ago to equip aspiring and emerging entrepreneurs with the skills required to build sustainable businesses. Mrs. Daniel Olajumoke, Managing Director of Real Mercy International Limited, spoke with newsmen in Ilorin after the 3-day MSME Academy workshop in the state. She commended Sterling Bank’s unwavering support to small and medium enterprises. 

Are you a female entrepreneur based in Ilorin? Or do you know someone who fits the bill?

Sterling Bank is pleased to announce that five lucky women entrepreneurs – or lady bosses as we fondly call them – stand a chance of winning seats at the upcoming Sterling MSME Academy event in Ilorin, Kwara. The program has been specially crafted to equip budding and established entrepreneurs with the knowledge, network and financial support they need to thrive in the business landscape.

We hope Mothering Sunday 2017 was an amazing day for your Mum! She deserves all the love and affection you can give for her many sacrifices.

This weekend, Sterling Bank helped to celebrate hundreds of wonderful mums with the inspiring #MySterlingMum campaign. We asked fans to tweet photos of their mums along with heartwarming captions of how amazing they are.

And tweet they did. In fact, they went all out with amazing stories of triumph and memorable childhood moments, courtesy of their Queen Bees. A huge thank you to everyone who participated and we wish you all the best in our contest! We will announce the winner of our N50K Verve gift cards on Tuesday, but in the meantime, have a look at some of our favourite entries:
