Letting Our Cre8ive Juices Come Alive

VC 1 Supporting the Nigerian Creative Sector is central to our mission at W-HBS. We are committed to providing services to aspiring, emerging and established creative entrepreneurs. This is because the industry helps us to achieve components in our mission such as job creation, economic growth and making the world a better place. There is a need to harness the huge potentials that the Nigerian creative sector has to contribute to the national GDP so as to increase the 1.6% contribution it made to the rebased GDP. It is also important to  ensure that local content contribution to the growth of the sector is promoted. The entertainment sector is a key 'job creation' sector. For the movie sub-sector, the job creation potential is huge in the entire value chain from script writing to distribution. All of these advantages prompted our acceptance of the project to help refine the Business Plan for Viva Cinema, Ilorin to Bank of Industry standards.  

The Role Of Credit Bureaus In Increasing Access To Finance For Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises

CBAN-NASME Fact SheetThe role of entrepreneurs and entrepreneurship is vital to any economy, with its benefits including job creation, increased productivity, increased revenue, wealth creation and inclusive growth.  In many developing economies, Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) account for the larger majority of businesses in the country with significant reliance on them for economic growth. Despite their strategic position and role in the economy, access to Finance has continued to constitute a major challenge. In advanced economies, Credit Bureaus help consumers and small businesses obtain financing by offering timely, credible and objective information on borrowers, allowing financial institutions reduce loan processing time and cost by 25% or more, while equally cutting default rates by 40%-80%. These savings, no doubt, can mean lower interest rates, making credit more affordable and available to those in need. In line with its vision of "Credit information for wealth creation" the Credit Bureau Association of Nigeria (CBAN) in collaboration with Nigeria Association of Small and Medium Enterprises (NASME) organised a one-day  Public-Private Dialogue (PPD) on The Role of Credit Bureaus In Increasing Access To Finance For Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises in Nigeria.
