Women in poultry economic empowerment

The women empowerment program provides opportunities for positive change by providing a pathway for women in poultry farming in Ethiopia to access and take control of Poultry farm as an economic powerhouse.

It does this by providing a channel for women to become financially included, build assets that enables them build a sustainable livelihood from the income generated.

The Program is aligned to Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 1 which focuses on ending poverty in all its manifestations, SDG 5 which focus on the reduction of gender inequalities and SDG 8 which focuses on sustainable economic growth.

Afran Qallo poultry farm has developed a a women Empowerment Strategy to complement its efforts in reaching out to women engaged in poultry farming in Ethiopia through linkages and sustainable partnerships.

We work towards building positive changes to Women through info- empowerment, equipment acquisition, Marketing and financial inclusion and economic empowerment initiatives that address needs of chronic livelihood insecure women poultry farmers in the country who are constrained by lack of access to and control over economic acquisitions, basic services and denial of rights living in urban informal and rural settings.

This is done by building the capacities of poor communities using different Methodology as an entry point. We build on the network of stakeholders and facilitators to bring on board a broad range of interventions that include: Financial Education/Literacy, Rural Sales Agents, Micro enterprise development, Linkages to formal financial institutions, Market engagement and Poverty Graduation Models.

Our work is driven by innovative approaches to reach our target group while leveraging on technology.
Moving Forward, we would like to enlist women Poultry Farmers across the country so as to form cells as basis of our engagement to the farmers on the ground.
