WomenConnect Challenge - Solidaridad Fact Sheet
Date published: Jan. 2, 2023
Solidaridad is linking women dairy farmers in Bangladesh to formal supply chains and delivering critical information about competitive market prices, financial literacy, and modern dairy practices. In this project, women across five districts had the opportunity to enroll in a mobile money program that offered training in financial and dairy-farming best practices and provided resources to improve joint decision making in the family. The Solidaridad project tapped into three of the proven strategies—changing social norms, creating economic opportunities, and developing community support—as the basis for its work.
