For the 2022 ELOY Business Shower, The ELOY Awards Foundation has  partnered with FirstBank to design,  encourage, promote and empower businesses owned by female entrepreneurs across Nigeria.

The focus and aim was to expose female entrepreneurs to important business skills, networking, and the ELOY FOUNDATION BUSINESS TOOLKIT, which is a collection of business survival information, grants and affordable loans which is being executed through FirstBank’ FirstGem 9% Loan Scheme created for female-owned MSMEs and the SMEConnect Initiative.

The Eloy Business Shower by the ELOY Awards Foundation was held in FIVE different states; Lagos, Port Harcourt, Abuja, Kano and Abia states from the 23rd of June to the 7th of July, 2022. According to Tewa Onasanya, Founder of the ELOY Awards Foundation, the event held to support business owners on their journey to building a sustainable business.


We hosted over 500 hundred women across Nigeria. It was an avenue for these women to gain access to entrepreneurial trainings from experienced business men and women, who armed them with tools and information to help them grow their businesses successfully.
