Women entrepreneurs in Kano State have been told not limit themselves in the trades they wish to engage in as government is ready to give them the support to become self-reliance. 
Speaking at the first Business Women and Entrepreneurship Forum’s (BWAEF) workshop for women at the Grand Central Hotel in Kano, the state Commissioner for Commerce and Industry, Alhaji Rabiu Bako charged the women to utilize their gifted talents and limitless potentials to make them become self-reliance and excel in their choosing trades.
He said government is committed to supporting, encouraging and empowering them in any trade or profession they choose to engage in.
“The state government has taken several measures to support and encourage women towards self- reliance, it will still do more,” he said.
The commissioner urged them not think that without professional certificates they could not become entrepreneurs in their chosen fields.
He said they should always believe and see themselves as being capable in any trade they wish to do.
Earlier in her opening speech, the organizer of the workshop, Maryam Yunusa Abubakar said the workshop was to educate the women and link them with government and non-governmental organisations so that they can access funds, be empowered in their respective businesses and become self-reliance.
Over 200 women participated at the workshop. “They came because a lot of them wanted to get funds and support for their businesses. They have the zeal to do the businesses that is why they are here and as you can see they are so excited about it,” she said.
