An IDA-supported project has increased yields of major staples -- including rice, wheat, maize and potato -- by more than 50%. And women farmers have benefited from new equipment including mini-power tillers, winnowing machines, seeders.
An IDA-supported project has helped farmers and entrepreneurs in Nepal to build viable agribusinesses. The project has reached more than 42,800 beneficiaries through private firms, cooperatives, farmer groups and agribusinesses, of which more than 42% are led by women.
