First Bank of Nigeria Limited will on November 10 host an SME webinar themed ‘Rebuilding your Business’ by 10am via Zoom.

The event is organised in collaboration with FBN Insurance Brokers and FBN Quest with its discussants including FirstBank Group Executive, Retail Banking (Lagos & West) Tunde Owolabi; MD/CEO FBNInsurance Brokers Olumide Ibidapo, and MD, FBNQuest Funds Ijeoma Agboti.

The bank says the SME webinar is designed to empower the participants and promises to provide ways to access opportunities such as business financing, advisory, wealth preservation and appropriate business coverage. These opportunities are essential elements in the rebuilding and rebounding efforts, as well as safety of businesses, towards their continued contribution to national development.

Speaking on the event, FirstBank’s Deputy Managing Director Gbenga Shobo said: “At FirstBank we identify with the indelible roles played by SMEs towards the continued growth of the Nigerian economy as without a doubt, they remain the engine of not just our economy but the global economy.

“I enjoin every business owner to participate in this event in order to be enlightened with essential information to promote the safety and economic security of their business, especially at this time.”

Only recently, FirstBank partnered with the Lagos State Employment Trust Fund (LSETF) in a matching fund scheme to cushion the impact of COVID-19 pandemic on low-cost private schools by ensuring lending at an attractive interest rate.

Since the start of the year, the bank has held several SME events including an SME business clinic train that moved from Lagos to Abuja and Port-Harcourt in February.
