Check out this short video of LadyAgri’s first high level strategy meeting held on 12 March, Brussels. The meeting brought together our partners from the development banks, social impact investors, EU & Africa Institutions,  LadyAgri women entrepreneurs from across Africa, corporate leaders, technical and financial experts & professional federations.

Throughout the busy morning, discussions and debate were enriched by the combination of perspectives on what is holding back investment into agriculture, women led businesses and women dominated agri-supply chains.

Our model is Gender Smart Investing FOR Impact, switching to a value-based economy, where the well-being of the people working in agri-supply chains is valued and understood. The meeting allowed Lady Agri to share our findings from recent field missions and meetings with Ministers of Agriculture, women entrepreneurs, cooperatives & producer groups in Togo, Côte d’Ivoire, Ethiopia, Burkina Faso & Zambia.

LadyAgri’s main objective and mission is to build bridges and overcome any disconnect.  We are the bridge between the investment-financing and donor communities, advanced ag-tech companies and agri-business service providers, and women agricultural entrepreneurs. This high level strategy meeting involving the multiple stakeholders demonstrated that LadyAgri is an innovative investment model for unlocking public-private investment to drive an inclusive women-led agricultural transformation in Africa & Small Island Developing States.

 

 

Thank you to all of those who participated and contributed to the success of the day!
