This video focuses on the achievements of three female farmers – Ms Eliza (dairy farmer from Sirajganj), Ms Monawara (shrimp farmer from Satkira), and Ms Shipra (landless farmer from Sherpur) selected for their achievements on FAO projects in different parts of the country. The video was shown during the International Women’s Day 2016 event, jointly organized by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations and the Economic Relations Division (ERD), on Wednesday 09 March 2016.

The video shows the ongoing struggle of women at different stages of the agriculture sector of Bangladesh – how success is achieved despite the limited access to modern inputs and resources at time, playing a fundamental role in changing their own livelihoods as well as their communities.

The video illustrates the examples on three different farmer women coming from different social strata and their story of changing lives of others through hard working, trainings, and technical support from the FAO and the Government of Bangladesh.
