Video: Cross-Border Women Traders’ Capacity Building Project

Published on November 08, 2018

The USAID Hub contributes to women’s self-reliance and economic empowerment by increasing their access to productive economic resources, namely: assets, credit, income and employment. The Hub recently concluded a two-month training program with partner Agribusiness Focused Partnership Organization (AGRIFOP) to build the capacity of rural cross-border traders, with an emphasis on female traders. A total of 112 women participated in the program, which strengthened their skills in enterprise management, structured trade, East African Community (EAC) grain standards, cross-border trade regulations, market information and access to finance. Watch the video below to find out more about the Cross-Border Women Traders’ Capacity Building Project.
