YAGANET MODEL 

We identify, empower and support in scaling up small survival enterprises owned by hardworking women and youth entrepreneurs from rural and underserved communities.

 

The identified women and youth in agribusiness or non-farm enterprises are trained among other things in business development, financial literacy, record keeping, group dynamics and customer care using customized content.

 

We then organize them into savings groups according to their enterprises; thereafter we enable these women and youth in groups to access scale-up seed capital in form of micro credit at only 3% interest. And the 3% interest goes back to the savings groups for their sustainability. After a member enterprise has reached a level of repayment, she/he pays the borrowed money to the savings group for other new trained women and youth owned enterprises to access it and vise-vasa.

 

Most of our trained and recruited entrepreneurs who receive scale-up seed capital inform of microloans are women and youth, who traditionally have fewer resources and less access to financial services from banks. YAGANET frequently links these savings groups to other financial institutions where necessary for continuously access to finances.

Our three program pillars 

Women and youth play a very important role in poverty eradication and improving the level of living. Since the overall level of education attainment among rural women and youth is low, their contribution is often limited to unskilled and manual work.

We train and impart business & managerial skills to women and youth needed to start and run a profitable farm and non-farm businesses.

Reduce Gender Gaps in financial Inclusion by

Empowering women, young girls and boys with financial literacy skills and knowledge to make informed financial decisions .​

Organise them into saving groups to enable access to finances for their enterprise scaling up.

We do research for evidence based interventions. We provide development and welfare support services including the expanded social package that influences rural underserved communities to improve among others services; community social and emotional support, and linkage to community agribusiness resources; Access to Safe Water for production, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) and Create ICT innovations for inclusiveness in agribusiness.
