inequality and limited access to capital often hinder growth and innovation. Moreover, the
struggle to access new markets beyond local boundaries limits growth prospects for many
Addressing these challenges is central to the Nimbus Aid Project’s mission, and successful
SMEs will gain access to marketing and brand-building resources to drive their business

organisations to harness the power of nationwide outdoor advertising on Nimbus Media
screens. In 2022, the project extended its reach to support ten women-led businesses, each
receiving N2 million worth of advertising support, enhancing their market exposure and
