Heritage Bank Supports MSMEs To Grow Into Generational Conglomerates


Heritage Bank Plc, Nigeria’s Most Innovative Banking Service provider, has assured promoters of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises of support to enable them grow their businesses into generational conglomerates.
The MD/CEO of the Bank, Ifie Sekibo, disclosed this in a statement signed by the Divisional Head, Corporate Communications of the bank, Fela Ibidapo. According to Sekibo, Heritage Bank is poised to collaborate with operators of MSMEs to grow them into generational conglomerates, remarking that their desire is for Nigerian businesses to be listed on the stock exchanges and eventually become global brands and household names.
Sekibo noted that surviving in the face of all odds as a business in Nigeria with the present economic situation is not an easy feat, adding that tenacity is a key characteristic of a sustainable business. He remarked that notable businesses such as Quaker Oats and KFC went through trying times, overcame them and are now global brands.
“We believe that businesses like yours are the backbone of the economy because you create jobs and play a huge role in moving our country out of this present recession. I encourage you to rise up to this challenge facing every Nigerian entrepreneur and make our economy vibrant again,” Sekibo said.
