The UN estimates that if female farmers were given the same
access to resources as men, their productivity and harvest would increase by
30%. Opportunity International provides
the access to financial and agricultural loans, training and support that
unlocks this potential so that farmers, like Leila, can provide for their
family and build a successful livelihood.
