Nigeria’s number one rugs and carpets brand, Nobel Carpets, has demonstrated its unalloyed commitment to support and encourage Nigerian women entrepreneurs. The company reaffirmed this at the just concluded 2015 Empowerment Day event organized by Prime Women Builders Foundation of Nigeria which took place in Badagry, Lagos.

With the theme; An Enterprising Heart, the aim of the event is to assist women in communities to acquire needed skills to self-realization and empowerment in their chosen area of endeavor.
Nobel Carpets and Rugs from the stables of Lucky Fibres plc was also presented with the Prime Women Builders Foundation of Nigeria Recognition Award for its outstanding support for women empowerment.

Speaking at the event which was sponsored by Nobel Carpets, Assistant National Sales Manager, Mrs. Bunmi Odunoye encouraged women to become self-sufficient by acquiring entrepreneurial skills which will go a long way in empowering them economically. She also urged the women to take advantage of empowerment opportunities provided by Nobel Carpets.

She said, “As a company, Nobel Carpets understands the role and contribution of women in the society. We are also aware of some of the economic challenges women face and we are motivated to empower them to overcome them”.

She added that “Women can start a centre rug business with as little as N20, 000 and make good margins on every investment. As a company, we would assist women entrepreneurs in acquiring our products at very affordable prices and also deliver it to them at no cost so they can maximize profit”.

Also speaking at the event, National President Prime Women Builders Foundation of Nigeria, Mrs Adekemi Olofinkua stated that this year’s event was aimed at encouraging women to go after and create opportunities rather than wait for them.

She said, “This year’s theme, ‘An enterprising heart’ reflects a heart that is creative, enterprising and willing to take challenges, a heart that goes after opportunities rather than wait for them.”
Mrs. Olofinkua also expressed her gratitude to Nobel carpets and Rugs for their continued partnership and support for the foundation in empowering women.
