USAID Administrator Marc Green's recent trip to sub-Saharan Africa highlighted USAID's work to empower women. The USAID Hub's Gender and Youth Compendium documents how the project contributes to these efforts by increasing women and youth's access to productive economic resources, namely assets, credit, income and employment. To date, women represent 58 percent of participants in Hub-assisted programs designed to increase access to productive economic resources. Women have also obtained 51 percent of the 46,481 jobs created with Hub support.
