WIFE of Borno State governor, Hajiya Nana Kashim Shettima, has empowered 500 less privileged women  with soft loans to enable them engage in petty trading.
Her pet project, SWOT Foundation, is specifically targeted at women, most of whom are orphans and widows, in order to assuage their loss to the Boko Haram crisis and alleviate poverty in the state.
Inaugurating the scheme at the multipurpose Hall of the Borno State Government House in Maiduguri, she said the loan was designed for the economic empowerment and educational advancement of the vulnerable women.
Stressing that  it was her dream in life to render assistance to the less-privileged, Hajiya Nana said the need for the establishment of SWOT Foundation was to achieve such an objective.
