Meet Amina: She is a farmer

Amina is a farmer

Amina is a farmer.

She sows and harvests. She feeds and tends her family’s animals, collects fuelwood, carries water. She sells crops she grows. She shops and cooks. She funds her children’s education, cleans house, takes care of the sick and elderly.

Despite all of this, Amina has less access to assets, opportunities and benefits than her husband, her brother, her father or her son. Much less.
