In the banking space where everybody is so focused on making money, it seems that United Bank for Africa(UBA) and Tony Elumelu Foundation(TEF) have other plans too. In a recent news that appeared in UBA official Facebook page, they have signed a partnership deal with United Nations Development Programme(UNDP) to empower some 100,000 business owners in Africa.
The Tony Elumelu Foundation have entered an agreement with the United Nations Development Programme that will make it possible to empower some 100,000 business owners in 7 Sahel Africa countries. This empower entrepreneurs in Africa partnership will run for a period of 10 years.
