What a great job AWAN-Afrika is doing by incorporating women in this whole discussion and bringing their concerns and issues to the fore" during her keynote speech this morning, at the German-African Agribusiness Forum.
We have received training on access to markets which has helped me to prepare documentations for exports. I have also gained a pool of connections interested in buying my products. AWAN Afrika connected me to women in Agribusiness in Africa. It has exposed me to exhibition and networking events in Africa and abroad. The programme enabled me to see what other women are doing and improve my products.
Joining networks like AWAN AFRIKA helps to accelerate and facilitate the growth of small businesses to access information and opportunities. It is definitely a place I want to stay in.
What impresses me is the strength of the network. I developed my network in East Africa! I also got to understand that we have similar issues so we share solutions.
