USAID Financing Agriculture Project (USAID FinGAP) is poised to help invest in women involved in agribusiness value chain. This is to help empower women in helping build a resilient economy.
Ms Sharon Cromer, USAID Ghana Mission Director believes that, empowering women in agriculture can serve as a catalyst to help position the country as a nation beyond aid faster and in a sustainable manner. She indicated that empowering women to participate in the local economy could pave the way to Ghana’s self-reliance and economic growth.
“Fostering broad-based inclusive economic growth means unlocking everyone’s potential, including women and youth, to fully utilise their talents. This involves investing in gender-smart solutions,” she said at the Women in Agribusiness Development Summit organised by the USAID –Financing Agriculture Project (USAID-FinGAP) in Accra.
