Our Background

Agriculture plays an important role in the socio-economic life of the African continent. The rural development sector occupies 75% of the active population and contributes 52.8% of GDP. Besides, reports predict an exponential growth of the global population by 2050 to 9.2 billion people with 2.3 billion in Africa. Today, about 240 million people are malnourished. To ensure food and nutrition security, we must triple agricultural production. Women are the backbone of the African agricultural sector. From farm to fork, African women play a role in the entire agricultural value chain, whether as farmers, ranchers, processors, traders, workers, entrepreneurs or consumers. Although their influence on the continent’s booming agri-food sector is undeniable, they are unfortunately still confined to low-productivity, unprofitable subsistence farming. As a result, it becomes imperative to implement solutions in support of their efforts to attain profitability and competitiveness.
