Eritrean Women Agribusiness Association

By Ruth Abraham
Agriculture is the backbone of our economy, and farmers contribute to the efforts to achieve food security and national development.

Their most crucial challenge has been marketing their products, and the Eritrean Women Agribusiness Association (EWAA) has been a leader in taking initiatives to address the challenge and empower women farmers.EWAA was formed in 2003 under the auspices of the Chamber of Commerce and supported by the head of the Chamber of Commerce, Mrs. Tsehaitu Daniel.
