AWP Network Agribusiness Training for Women

The AWP Network continues to work with women farmers in Taraba State, Nigeria. For this training session, AWP partnered with locally-based entrepreneur Zanau Hassan Maikusuwa, a seasoned farmer and CEO of Farmfields Agro-Allied Services with funding support from the Planet Earth Institute.

Zanau Hassan will continue to coordinate and manage the day-to-day activities of the program. The program aims to teach innovative farming techniques through collaborative learning and workshops. The program allows women farmers in Taraba to hone in on their entrepreneurial skills, increase farming productivity, and household income.

Mary Olushoga states, “at the AWP Network, we remain committed to supporting the growth, development, and entrepreneurial efforts of African women. We recognize that women farmers need encouragement and business support. More women also need access to financing to purchase agricultural equipments. We are certainly open to working with various financial institutions to make this happen. Indeed, there’s more work to be done.\”

The AWP Network Agropreneur project is a workshop-based training project set to use quantitative and qualitative data to inform and help women farmers improve farming techniques, practices, as well as increase yield and production at a reduced cost. This includes a three-day practical training session on irrigation rice farming, post-training extension services, and building a network of women farmers across Nigeria.
