THE International Food Corp (IFC) in Lae has donated K10,000 to the PNG Women in Business (WIB) to help it fund its forthcoming expo.
IFC chief executive Rosedean Dzulkfli presented the cheque for K10,000 to PNGWIB president and businesswoman Janet Sape at the company’s head office at Malahang last Thursday.
Mr Dzulkfli praised the group for being vibrant in terms of supporting women in business and dedicated in pursuing equal participation in development.
He said he believed the expo would create awareness among business houses to support and encourage women’s involvement in business.
Mr Dzulkfli said he hoped the event would serve as a platform of communications for women through which they would get needed information on business opportunities.
Mrs Sape, who received the cheque, commended the company for being one of the biggest sponsors in the city.
She also praised the company for investing in women because 95% of its employees were women.
