AFFÉRY, Ivory Coast – Despite the essential role women play in farming, they are often subject to persistent discrimination in the rural world. With a view to favoring women’s access to farming professions and breaking with gender stereotypes, as a pilot, the IECD is offering a platform for young women: the Girls’ Club.
The contest organized by the Louis Dreyfus Foundation in partnership with the IECD allows 4 entrepreneurs from the Ivorian agri-food sector to receive a total of 24 million CFA francs (€37,000) in aid designed to develop their business.
