Promoting Women Leaders In Agribusiness

Women across the globe play significant roles in agricultural value chains. They play central roles, from production to post-harvest processing - which are often key determinants of the size and quality of the final agri produce. However, women are left out from the decision-making process about input provision and use, crop production, harvesting, processing and storage. Women are heavily under-represented in transportation, marketing, and sales across Africa. Furthermore, women in agribusiness across Africa face a “triple-burden” of responsibilities to their businesses, families, and communities, leaving them far less time than most men to invest in their businesses.
