Animal assets empower women in developing countries

Jemimah Njuki leads the Poverty Gender and Impact team at the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI).

In this short film she explains her belief that farm animals are one way for poor women to make money, feed their families better and educate their children. “Owning animal assets gives women power” says Njuki, “… and this gives women a voice … and when women become equal partners, everyone benefits!”
