Our initiative has undertaken the capacity building of women in various sectors of economy. This informed our Vision 5W-250,000, which is conceived to empower 50, 000 women yearly for a period of five years. Under this scheme, business grants are given to women evidently in need of funds to grow their business, scholarship are given to the deserving people while regular quarterly business management seminars are held for micro business owners with quick capital dispensed under the MMS WoFHoF Micro Credit Scheme.
With active focus on female gender matters, the introduction of its outreach scheme: Women In Leadership and Career Empowerment Programme (WILCEP) Africa has further endeared it to both women and men across the globe.

The mentors, the MMS Hall of Famers are women of no mean pedigrees in different fields of their professions, who rose to the top by dint of hard work and humility.
