According to bank provided information, he project is planned to be implemented over 3 years. The project will be implemented in Alexandria and Bahira Governorates, and for two potential export crops: carrots and potatoes. The proposed model is based on empowering and supporting women input suppliers so that their companies could become centers for supporting women-farmers through providing inputs, services and knowledge including (i) technical support, (ii) product sales and (iv) value added services. In that context, the project will be building up the capacity of two important segments that potentially represent business opportunities for women entrepreneurs, including those who are women farm owners and those who are input suppliers and aggregators. Both segments face various challenges including a lack of best practices, limited access to know-how and finance, and weak business and management capacity to manage their farms and businesses. The project will develop comprehensive technical capacity-building and training programs to build up the capacity of these women farm owners and input suppliers as well as to link them to large off-takers and exporters.
