RATIONALE:

  • Fashion is an industry that should be valued because it relies on human creativity for survival. This is a resource that is not finite as human creativity is limitless and will never run out as long as human beings exist. For sustenance, it relies on the human craving for things of beauty; this is a craving that is never satisfied and changes from time to time.
  • The fashion industry is fast growing in Nigeria and it accounts for 0.47 per cent (N380 billion) of Nigeria’s rebased Gross Domestic Product (GDP).
  • The Fund will support skills acquisition to promote and develop local labels and brands for those targeting high quality niche products and markets as well as those targeting the mass market. This will enable them take advantage of the significant value addition in whatever area the entrepreneur is operating in the fashion industry.
  • This Fund will address the perennial problem of access to finance particularly, working capital, which is the bane of small businesses.
  • The Fund has the potential to bring about higher efficiencies, productivity and job creation.

MARKET STRUCTURE:

The fashion industry by its nature has a very wide range of goods and services that fall under its purview.
In defining the market structure, we shall adopt a three-pronged approach:
  1. Retail  business (direct sales by producers)
  2. Wholesale buyers (Retail shops)
  3. Distributors (Agents)

Retail:
The producer will be expected to have at least one outlet, which will be a display area for her products. Sales will be made to walk-in customers at this location.
Wholesale:
The producer is expected to develop a good relationship with retail shops that have a wide network of stores around the country and even beyond. Jumia, Konga and other similar online retailers should also form part of the wholesale buyers with which the business will have a relationship.
Distributors:
These are middlemen who will buy goods from the Fund beneficiary for sale through networks they would have developed in the course of their own businesses.
