Norms and Etiquette

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

Women in Business

The internet age has come to disrupt the way of doing business in all countries by introducing e-commerce. It has provided fertile ground that women entrepreneurs in Africa can explore. Digitization brings business opportunities with many businesses now moving from just having brick and mortar shops to working on their online presence.  Most financial institutions now lend over the phone without needing the physical presence of an applicant.

As financial dependence was a big hurdle in the growth and development of women, E-entrepreneurship became a great force for women to cross these hurdles. (re word)
