Financial institution Windhoek boosts ladies entrepreneurship once more


Approximately 48 mentors and mentees will begin tomorrow with a program designed to empower and encourage entrepreneurs, business and professional women to build their careers successfully.

The program sponsored by Bank Windhoek is coordinated by the experienced HR specialist Sabine Ruegg.

The Katuka Mentorship Program was founded by the late Lena Markus – former businesswoman of the year 2000.

In its 20th year, the program has achieved significant results in the careers of the participating mentees.

To date, 401 entrepreneurs and business women have completed the program.

“The Katuka Mentorship Program is a development method that provides support and training through relationship building. It’s about bringing together a mentee and mentor with a similar personal and professional interest in the process of support, sharing and learning to help entrepreneurs and businesswomen who want to start, work successfully, or thrive at the highest in their existing line of business Level, ”said the organizer of the program, Desèré Lundon-Muller.

Bronwyn Moody, director of social investments, sponsorship and events at Bank Windhoek, says the bank is a partner for growing women entrepreneurs – both personally and professionally.

“We’re proud to connect with the relationship mentors and mentees will be building in the coming year,” she says.

The Katuka mentoring program is designed to facilitate the professional development of younger women by exposing it to the experiences of those with established careers. The second training course takes place in April and a third in August.

“As we travel together in this partnership, we hope that everyone involved in this process will achieve their full potential,” says Moody.
