According to the researchers and economic experts, Africa is getting richer by the minute but does it feel that way in your purse?

That’s right! Things are tough out there. It’s so bad, some of our Nigerian comrades have had to take drastic measures just to survive. 

While our immediate reaction was definitely to run and cry at that depressing bowl of rice, we know that tough times can provide a great foundation for a better tomorrow. This is the perfect time to get serious about your finances and figure out how to turn your current struggles into future success. It doesn’t matter how little you think you’re making today, you can still start to invest and work your way towards financial independence.

On Tuesday June 7th we hosted a webinar with financial advisor Ada Ijara where she introduced us to a private trust, an investment vehicle that can help young women reach their financial goals faster than a traditional savings account.

Some of the topics we covered:

  • How a private trust is different than a regular savings accounts
  • How a private trust can help you super charge your savings
  • As a young woman, the major areas you should be investing in
  • Ways to make sure your savings and investments are safe
