Women Farmers Scale up Business with Value Addition to Their Farm Products.

After being trained for six months and graduating as entrepreneur from the Farmers Business School organized by WOFAN & ICRISAT with support from CARI/WOFAN project and USAID Ground Nut Scale up Project, 2100 women farmers who graduated from 4 LGAs of Kano state now add value to their products through improved packaging and applying financial management skills as well as measuring to scale their products.

Already groups have formed themselves and registered into functional cooperatives of 30 members each and have commenced inter-state export of their finished products.
Commenting on their progress, the women leader, Sa’adatu Sani representing the umbrella group said they can calculate their profit margin and also can be specific with their measurements by using scales and calculators which is both beneficial to them as the entrepreneurs and the consumers. The women groups have received several exchange visits among themselves while peer group learning on going at their various centers.
