It’s the year of Consistency and guts at the ELOY Awards Foundation and they are on a mission to inspire women to remain consistent and have the guts to be themselves no matter what.
The ELOY Awards Foundation is charging everyone especially financial institutions to make funds easily accessible to women business owners and women in general and to encourage financial literacy.
According to Tewa Onasanya, Founder of The ELOY Awards Foundation, “This year, at the ELOY Conference, we want women to stop being shy and have the guts to talk about money and wealth creation.
We will be arming women with actionable tips to inspire them to make more money, invest, save and spend wisely to empower them for financial freedom. At the ELOY Awards, we are celebrating women in different sectors for being focused on activities to achieve their goals. It is important for us highlight the fact that consistency is the main driver for success.”
That is why the theme for the ELOY Conference and Awards 2022 is Investment and access to funds as tools to sustain women empowerment – #Theyearofconsistencyandguts.
The ELOY Foundation has moved the needle from just conversations about Sustaining Women Empowerment to taking action in providing a platform for Women in MSMEs to thrive and sustain their businesses through access to mentoring, training, affordable finance, grants and networking opportunities.

About the ELOYs
The aim of the ELOY awards is to recognize Nigerian outstanding women and their achievements and roles in the society. To increase the economic visibility of women in Nigeria, to create a platform for networking hence enhance communication links to encourage women into businesses and to support the work being done by Nigerian women to improve themselves and Nigeria. This event is also being used as a platform to continue to increase the awareness for cervical cancer which kills one woman every hour in Nigeria.
Impact of the ELOY Awards so far;
- The ELOYs have been awarded to 225 women to date, who have gone on to be better at what they do.
- We have been able to enroll 90 women in MSME’s onto the ELOY Foundation Sustainable Empowerment Program (SEP) that started in 2020, these small business owners were mentored for a period of six months and they had access to entrepreneurial trainings every month. 10 of them were awarded a grant.
- It has increased motivation in all women as everyone wants to be nominated for an ELOY at one point during their career or business.
- Improved self development in awardees and nominees, that have gone on to make a huge impact to their sector.
- A platform that has helped identify excellence in the creative and business sectors that have gone on to become house hold names (Eno Essien, Sisi Yemmie, Tiwa Savage, Seyi Shay, Olamide, Korede Bello to mention a few)
- ELOY recognizes categories and identifies industries where people think women are not active or striving in.
- The ELOYs has become a permanent fixture on people’s calendars, as everyone in Nigeria looks forward to these prestigious awards every year with great expectations and trust.
