SWEAN concludes empowerment program for women in agriculture
The Support to Women Entrepreneurs in the Agrifood Sector in Nigeria (SWEAN) held its official project close-out ceremony on 19 June at IITA headquarters in Ibadan. IITA–CGIAR and partners implemented the two-year project in two states—Oyo and Kaduna—to empower women in agriculture.
The ceremony, moderated by SWEAN Project Coordinator Zainatou Soré, started with a documentary showcasing community training carried out in Zaria, Kaduna State and Ibadan, Oyo State, during the period of the project. Two beneficiaries of the training Ebun Feludu from Oyo State, and Aishatu Abdulkarim from Kaduna State, shared testimonies of how the training helped them set up and grow their businesses.
