WINDHOEK, NOV. 26 – Lionesses of Africa Organisation – the fastest growing network of women entrepreneurs on the African continent – recently held a women’s entrepreneurs networking event in the capital.
Lionesses of Africa has over 730,000 women business owners in all 54 African countries.
The event was served to inspire the entrepreneurs and provided a great opportunity for business networking.
Entrepreneurs are transforming our world and the way we live. It is well known that innovative minds are creating new businesses and jobs, growing wealth of global economies and sparking development change.
However, female leaders and entrepreneurs frequently face challenges, including a lack of female role models and mentors as well as lack of access to funding.

“Just as your drive and passion as entrepreneurs is unrivalled among your peers, our financial service offering stands out among our competitors,” she said, further outlining that business clients have access to a reliable mentor as well as streamlined and efficient services through a designated relationship banker.
Du Plessis also highlighted that services, including education and retirement planning, PayToday and the Nedbank Techloan, open many doors for female entrepreneurs and business women.
“With the support system that the Lionesses of Africa provides and with the backing of a reliable financial institution like Nedbank, you have the power to promote sustainable change your community, your country and the world,” du Plessis concluded.
