Seventy (70) women entrepreneurs from Banfora, Bobo-Dioulasso, Sindou, Toussiana, Noumoudara, Nouna, and Gaoua attended a workshop in Banfora on October 23, 2014. This training was sponsored by the U. S. Embassy to Burkina Faso and focused on the African Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA) and how to export to the United States. Minata Kone and Christiane Coulibaly, two Burkinabe alumnae of the African Women Entrepreneur Program (AWEP), used this opportunity to share their experiences as women entrepreneurs and advise their peers on best practices. These businesswomen are already exporting cashews and dried mangoes to U.S. and European markets.
