Theory of Change
Our theory of Change is guided by four Pillars:
- Women Economic Inclusion in Agribusiness: This includes data base and profiling, targeted
advocacy, lobbying on policy affecting agri-business, blended finance, training on financial
management, mentoring and coaching and creating strong linkages with financial investment
institutions and companies that have innovative approach to financing for SMEs.
- Market Linkages: We focus on information sharing on existing and new markets, organise B2B
and Trade fairs, buyers and sellers markets, online market forums, cross exposure and
establishing alliances with private agri-business companies
- Technology and Agrit-tech: We are in the process of establishing AWAN members portal – a
repository for information about mechanization, soil testing, tools for quality control, providing
access to E-Commerce etc.
- Trade: We focus on facilitating trade at national, regional and international level. Women
entrepreneurs are supported on standards and certifications, INCO Terms, branding and
marketing, logistics and supply chains.
