REPORT: Prosepect's Learning Paper No. 6: Young Female Entrepreneurs

Prospects Liberia

The Employment and Entrepreneurship sub-program under Prospects Liberia provides young entrepreneurs, aged 18 to 35 years, business skills training and the opportunity to apply for a microgrant (USD 250 to USD 750) to start up or expand a business through a Youth Investment Fund. Data captured throughout the program indicates that significantly more women than men seek and receive the small business grants. Given this information, the Prospects team sought to understand what motivates young women to pursue entrepreneurship.

PRESENTATION: The Final Frontier: Lessons in Reaching Rural Women and Youth, Sep 2016

VOTO Mobile

In order to reach rural women and youth through mobile technology, they need to be able to access phones that work at the precise moment you are trying to engage with them. This isn’t always easy. While some own a phone, many find themselves in a range of different sharing situations, giving them partial access. Even phone owners experience issues like poor network, no electricity and expensive credit that can restrict their ability to use the phone. Despite these challenges, VOTO Mobile will present 10 ways to ensure your program is accessible to rural women and youth.

PRESENTATION: Engaging Youth in Gender-Based Discussions Around Agricultural Careers, Sep 2016

Innovate, Penn State University

Youth may make career choices based on the gender norms of the adults around them without critical awareness of their internalized gender bias. The Innovation for Agricultural Training and Education (innoVATE) gender and education training modules challenge youth to critically analyze whether they are basing judgement of tasks, skills and responsibilities on sex or gender norms. The goal of the training is to  enable youth to consider career paths primarily by interest and skill rather than being limited by an internalized or societal gender bias.
