Unlocking funding and business opportunities for women throughout the agricultural value chain
By bringing together gender, agriculture and financing experts, the roundtable discussion aims to unlock funding and business opportunities for women throughout the agricultural value chain. Through this initiative, the hope is to identify innovative funding models to channel more resources into women in the agricultural sector in ways that are concrete and measurable and have a positive impact on women’s lives.
This meeting is initiated by New Faces New Voices (NFNV) in partnership with Making Finance Work for Africa and the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) on behalf of the German Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).
