Gender and youth strategy for the market driven agri-mechanization solutions for small women farmers and youth entrepreneurs in Kenya
As men increasingly seek paid work away from home farm labour, women and youth become “the farmers of tomorrow.” Evidence shows that enabling women to have equal access to inputs, services, and land improves yields. They often pay greater attention to crop quality than men. This detailed report outlines the project proposal, main aims, and strategies to target rural youth and women in agriculture. The four County Governments in Kenya where the project is being implemented will create a conducive environment for the transformation and commercialisation of the market-driven gender-responsive agri-mechanization solutions and opportunities.
