IFC supports women in the poultry sector
The IFC Advisory Services for South Asia (the
SouthAsia Enterprise Development Facility - SEDF) and the Women Entrepreneurs
Association of Bangladesh have signed an agreement to provide support for women
farmers and entrepreneurs in the poultry sector.
This project includes training workshops to enhance technical and business
management skills, as well as sessions providing guidelines to help women
entrepreneurs improve their businesses. The initiative will increase
productivity and generate income for women in the sector.
â€œThere is a lot of interest from women to invest in the poultry sector, but
they lack the necessary skills. I hope that by delivering both technical
and business management training, this project will address this issue and
encourage women to set up poultry-related enterprises,â€ said the president of
the Women Entrepreneurs Association, Nasreen A. Mintoo.
â€œOur aim is to help women entrepreneurs develop the necessary skills to
scale up and remain competitive in a commercially viable, sustainable way,â€ said
Deepak Adhikary, deputy general manager and head of IFC-SEDF Bangladesh.
