The Women in Agribusiness Facility (WiAF – Nigeria) is a project of the Nigeria Agribusiness Register. WiAF’s aim is to bridge the gender gap in the agricultural landscape, recognize and encourage more women agripreneurs in value chains and related industries. In additional, WiAF supports employability and career development of women professionals in the agricultural sector across the spectrum of policy, corporate management, research and development.


Our program initiatives are focused on two broad areas, namely:

  • Developing Women who own Agribusiness: Activities here helps more women own businesses across 15 to 20 agricultural value chains by providing them with online and real-time business development services including outlining investment opportunities for women across the supply chain. This is achieved by identifying gaps that women can fill within the investment spectrum. We work with registered members to fill those gaps and take up those opportunities. Project activities include assisting women with preparation of business plans, preparation of documentations for accessing grants, credits and special funding from the government and other funders. Also provision of small business management trainings to strengthen their ability to manage their operations more profitably and be able to sell more in local and export markets. Plus other on-demand support.
  • Developing Women Employees: Helping women and girls to get corporate jobs in Agriculture and related establishments through Employability trainings, Networking and Internships in medium and large agriculture establishments in up to 20 Value chain companies listed in the Nigeria Agribusiness Register. So far we have provided Employability Training to 100 women to enhance their ability to get agriculture professional jobs in Agricultural Economics, Farm Management positions.
