Income generation for 100 women and girls in Cameroon

 

Poverty and hunger affect almost 900 million people world wide. Women are most affected since they play an invaluable role in managing families as income generators, producers, and mothers.

Rural women are mostly affected since they do not have access to opportunities for investment in lucrative economic activities. They also lack equipment and inputs to improve agricultural production.

Another serious issue is little access to education, social inequalities and religious taboos that often treat women as being inferior to the men. It must be emphasized that women constitute an invaluable proportion of farmers in the world accounting for 43 % of the world’s labor force and 50%in Africa.
