Effective Models to Create and Scale Entrepreneurship Opportunities for Vulnerable Rural Youth through Agriculture

While agriculture presents a viable option, youth often lack interest in traditional agriculture. Africa, holding the lion’s share of the world’s uncultivated arable land, will need the youth to take full advantage of the continent’s agricultural potential to feed itself.

‘Rural Youth’, an Untapped Market: Emerging Results from IFAD’s Rural Youth Economic Empowerment Program

MicroCred , Pro-Invest, International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD)

Globally, rural youth are an underserved and often misunderstood segment of the market for youth-inclusive financial services. In the MENA region it is even more pronounced.
