Following a call for proposals from the Africa Digital Financial Inclusion Facility (ADFI), Pula Advisors were successful in being awarded a grant to implement a project to better equip women farmers to improve their economic resilience.

The webinar will set out the context by outlining the challenges facing women farmers in Africa to access the financial and agronomy services they need and introduce the innovative approach of using human-centred design that is being adopted in this initiative.
