Two institutions, Rawbank and the African Guarantee Fund (AGF), are helping African women farmers sustain their farms through various initiatives. One of these programs is “Lady’s First,” which is currently providing training to 50 Congolese women farmers in agri-food project management, including:
– Sustainable development
– Peer-to-peer learning
These farmers receive support at the start of their ventures and during the initial months of operation, with the development of individual roadmaps. The Lady’s First network now comprises nearly 1500 supported female farmers and serves as a place for support and exchange. This initiative is also supported by the AFAWA program in partnership with the African Development Bank (AfDB).
