The Cocoa Horizons program counts approximately a third of women farmers. For women like Jennifer, becoming a coach is a great opportunity to develop self confidence, increase financial income and act as an inspiring role model for other women.
“I feel happy, valued and important as a professional because I am achieving part of my goals. I do not perceive any different treatment. When I communicate with farmers they pay attention, listen kindly and are always thankful when I respond to their questions and concerns.”
Jennifer is gaining a lot of experience as a coach and is aspiring to pursue her career with a Masters degree to become a leader in agricultural research while staying surrounded with positive people like herself.
