Young women’s business resilience in the face of economic uncertainty
Agriculture is not the only sector in which CAMA members are reaping the fruits of their labors, bringing opportunity and prosperity to their rural communities. CAMFED staff recently met with young women to learn about their successes and challenges: We heard from one entrepreneur who owns a chain of shops, from one who runs a brick moulding business where she employs six male workers, and another who recently took delivery of her third tractor.
Against a background of fluctuating currency value and other potential challenges, these young women are working hard to make a profit, scale their businesses, support their families and communities. They are also teaching us how we can best support their endeavors, and break down the barriers to success, be it through coordinated procurement at scale, or additional training resources to help young women calculate profitability.
We can’t prevent the thunderstorms, but we can be prepared - and together with our partners across the world, we can build a more sustainable future, led by these determined young women.
