We recently announced our intervention and efforts to help Small Businesses in Lagos keep the lights on after the darkness of the recent unrest here.
Our decision to do this comes from our culture of helping not only our merchants and customers but also people who may need our assistance in the times of crises.
As part of our efforts, we are offering:
- A discounted Flutterwave Store to these businesses so they do not need to build a physical store or website before they start selling.
- We also understand that some members of our startup communities were affected by the unrest and we are offering $5,000 worth of cloud hosting services to them as a way of reducing their financial burden, as they rebuild.
Our intention is to get everyone back and better as we continue to grow the economy of our nation and continent.
Recently, we have been called to serve in a high powered Team focused on rebuilding the distraught small and medium scale business community in Lagos. Our CEO and Co-Founder, Olugbenga Agboola will work with other members of the Private Sector to continue to Keep the Lights On for these businesses.
It is a thing of honour for us; to serve you; to be a part of your comeback and growth. It is what we have continued to do in our private efforts to grow our economy and when Nigerians and Lagosians call, we must answer.
Citibank Nigeria Chairman, Mr. Yemi Cardoso, will head the Board of the Lagos Rebuild Trust Fund Team.
Other members of the board are the Managing Partner, Olaniwun Ajayi LP, Prof. Konyinsola Ajayi (SAN); Chief Executive Officer of Sterling Bank, Mr. Abubakar Suleiman; Vice Chairman, Standard Chartered Bank, Mrs. Bola Adesola, – all representing the private sector – and a representative of an international donor agency.
