Our History

Nana started as a community based initiative in Yauri Emirate in 2008 to improve student academic performance in secondary schools by supporting teachers to provide extra lessons to students interested in pursuing high education. Due to high rate of unemployment among the youth in the region, Nana developed interest in giving financial support to youth and women to expand on their existing business. After two years experience, Nana decided to collaborate with an existing registered Microfinance Bank to manage the disbursement and repayment of loans in line with the microfinance guidelines and rules. Thereafter the focus expanded to support youth and women to start up a business or to expand on an existing business as socio-economic empowerment scheme. The organization was registered with the Cooperate affairs in 2015 and expanded it operation in Birnin-Kebbi and Sokoto states. Nana believes in innovative, scalable and cost effective interventions that empower women and girls and provide them with opportunities to challenge the existing gender inequality. Nana as an organization is passionate about girls and women and cherishes integrity, equity and justice. The strength of NANA team is deep local knowledge and good understanding of the gender issues that facilitate and hinder women’s path to empowerment as well as engagement with government, religious and traditional institutions and leadership.
