It is no longer news that several MSMEs and early-stage ventures had to wade through strong currents when the pandemic hit. However, while its impact was felt globally, the effect was not the same for everyone.
It’s no exaggeration to say that businesses owned by women, especially those of colour were severely devastated in the wake of the Covid-19 rife.
With an imbalance that was too glaring to ignore, OBA Inc. in February 2021, held its first Borderless Trade Women in Business Salon Series which was targeted at realizing the global impact of raising women who are well-grounded in trade, business and investment, as well as utilizing the AfCFTA protocols to their favour.
Piggybacking off the success of the Saloon series, OBA Inc. presents Project WINHER; A 4-stage investment education, financial inclusion and wealth creation project for women of colour.
Olori Boye-Ajayi, speaking on behalf of the other WINHER facilitators says, “We believe that the women who participate in this project will gain a high level of financial literacy that will demystify the subject of investment and enable them to recognize high ROI opportunities.”
This project is proudly supported by the Office of the Honorable Commissioner of Trade and Investment to Vanuatu to Nigeria and South Africa; sponsored by Cersei Partners and OBA Inc.

About Project WINHER
Project WINHER is a programme dedicated to empowering women to achieve financial wellness through the demystification of wealth creation.
It will be an opportunity for women entrepreneurs to network, get educated on investment opportunities and principles, discover sources of funding, share experiences and build new partnerships to enhance their entrepreneurial capacities and improve their approaches to wealth creation.
This project is by design to cater directly to women of colour of African descent within the continent and in diaspora within the age bracket of 18-45 seeking to gain the ability to build long term wealth through financial education and access to high interest-paying investment opportunities.
