Togo’s 2018-2022 PND plans to make women 28% of business owners, by 2022

(Togo First) - Togo aims to have 28% of business owners operating in the country by 2022 to be women, in line with its gender equity promotion strategy.

Compared to 2015, this would represent a 6% increase and a 3% increase compared to 2018 where this percentage was 25%.

In terms of access to loans for women, this rate is forecast at 60% by 2022, against around 45% in 2015.

The various financial inclusion mechanisms put in place, for example the FNFI which targets youths and women, should play a significant role in this process. Over the same period, womens’ access to land should also improve.

According to a recent report of Afrobaromètre, Togo is on the right path in regards to gender equity.
