I am a culturalist by nature with a Masters degree from Development and International Cooperation. Slowly my interest has developed towards creative arts. I seek to make an impact in the society using this tool. Why? because I believe art is an effective tool for disseminating information. With a background in political science and public administration, I wonder how I should marry these skills? Anyway, this is just the musings of an active mind.

My experience working in an NGO (Lift Above Poverty Organisation, LAPO) as a Branch Manager has exposed me to intricacies of money flow and sustainable livelihood especially among women. LAPO has a Microfinance Bank which provides soft loans for people especially women.

LAPO Empowers Nigerians and Africans in need by facilitating micro-loans in a cost-effective and innovative manner. With a vision is to be a first choice microfinance institution delivering responsive financial services while meeting the expectations of all stakeholders on a sustainable basis, LAPO's mission is to achieve the goal of economic empowerment of the target group through access to financial services to micro, small and medium enterprises on affordable terms.
