AgDevCo, UK based impact investor that finances African agribusinesses, recently published a case study by Els Rijke on empowering women in outgrower schemes.

The study showcases best practices to promote women’s economic empowerment in outgrower schemes. It derives practical lessons from successful outgrower schemes of AgDevCo’s investees, and links these to ten underlying principles of success.

Els visited the majority of companies last year to test out a gender toolkit Fair & Sustainable and AgriProFocus made for AgDevCo. This toolkit will be available or sharing later this year.
