- A number of innovative projects have been designed to increase women’s access to agricultural resources and services.
i. The Project on Productive Activities for Women Settlers in New Lands involved women in identifying their needs and priorities and in planning, organizing and implementing women’s development centres for income-earning activities. As a result, the first women’s cooperative society, the Agricultural Cooperative Society for Food Security, was formed.
ii. A project supported by the International Labour Organization (ILO) included training in income-generating skills, awareness meetings and provision of credit.
iii. A FAO-supported project trained women in food industries, poultry and livestock raising, and provided loans for small productive projects (10).



- Under the Principal Bank for Development and Agricultural Credit (PBDAC), 88 percent of short-term production loans and 84 percent of investments loans were extended to men in 1993, while women received only 12 percent and 16 percent respectively. Loan size for men and women was about the same. Women have greater access to credit through agricultural credit societies than through the Bank (10).
