Summary

The Project will provide training and livestock to 30 women who are rural farmers with small farms. These women were either affected by the last Ebola epidemic or are in some ways restrained by stigma or discrimination. These women will be the first of many women whose income and economic condition will have improved by the project's end. This project will rescue these women from the grinding poverty their communities are affected by.

Challenge

Subsistence farming is the main occupation of about 70% percent of the people. Lack of market access also reduces the income from the little produce of women farmers, coupled with the huge work load faced by women at the household level that reduces the time spent on the farms which affects production. Most Liberians (83%) live below the poverty line of US$1.25/day and 49% of the population are considered food insecure (World Food Programme [WFP] 2015). Lack of marketing skills affects income.

Solution

We will provide them the training in small business development and marketing (adding value to the products) We will provide farming tools and other agriculture inputs they need to enhance their productivity and raise their income level. We will provide livestock for breeding and manure. We will create awareness on the role of women and their rights in agriculture and the household.

Long-Term Impact

The project will empower 30 women to become agribusiness women ensuring a pathway out of poverty, which will provide for the family's health and well-being.
