The objective of the study was to capture the contribution of the project to creating gender equality and women empowerment in the agriculture sector. Among the top findings of this study, it was found that the intervention activities contributed to significantly increasing the participation of the women in economic activities and as such increased their participation in household decision-making and leadership roles. The study also uncovered opportunities for incorporating digital financial services, blended financing, and increasing the digital literacy of these beneficiaries for future interventions.

The detailed findings drawn from this study as well as the way forward will soon be published as a report.
