Women’s involvement in coffee agroforestry valuechains: Financial training, village savings and loans associations, and decision power in Northwest Vietnam

Globally, in the coffee sector and smallholder agriculture in developing countries, there is a distinct gender gap in key factors that enable women’s active participation in and contribution to the coffee value chain and in farm and domestic decisions, such as decisions over credit, agricultural inputs, and training opportunities and division of labor and time. This study is conducted by CARE’s partners, CCAFS and the World Agroforestry Centre (ICRAF), to assess Village Savings and Loans Associations (VSLA) impacts and related training on gender equality and women’s access to coffee markets in TEAL project implemented by CARE with financial support from the Australian Government.
