Burkina Faso

Titre : FORSELF : Training for Women’s Leadership (Burkina Faso)

Pays /Région : Burkina Faso
Localisation : - district No. 10 in the Ouagadougou commune

Date : 2019 -2021

In Burkina Faso, a certain number of obstacles prevent women entrepreneurs from fully playing their role as an economic driver : low levels of education, qualifications and income, high illiteracy rate, difficulties in accessing credit, lack of land ownership, poor access to means of production (inputs, modern equipment), family constraints, socio-cultural burdens, lack of coordination of interventions in the field of women’s entrepreneurship, etc. In addition, women have very limited access to vocational training. In fact, only 4.5%* – 6.3% men and 3.1% women – of the population aged 16 to 64 years have benefited from technical and vocational education and training.

Contribute to the sustainable improvement of the living conditions of women in District No. 10 of the Ouagadougou commune through the promotion of income-generating activities and micro-enterprises.

In 2019, 30 young girls and women learned to read, write, do arithmetic, manage and supervise their activities. Each has a business plan and a better knowledge of financing structures.
