A heart for business: women farmers turned entrepreneurs in Rwanda

“Women” and “fishing” are two words that would not have been used together in the same sentence a few years ago in Rwanda. It has been a long-held belief in Rwanda that fishing is not for women – it is a man’s occupation.

[…] “I was motivated to fish because I saw fishermen making more money than I was. One day I decided to try out the net,” says Valeria. “People were supportive. They would help me pull in the fishing gear along with the fish, but sometimes I would ask them not to help because I wanted to learn to do it by myself.”
