In order to break the cycle of poverty, there must be access to education and employment. Far too often, though, women living rural areas have access to neither. The reason for this is twofold. First, a lack of natural resources impedes economic development, particularly in the agricultural sector. It’s especially hard for local women to be provided with enough opportunities for work or chances to change their lives. Second, low-income rural women have little or no education or vocational training, leaving them ill equipped for employment in urban areas where opportunities are plentiful.
