Zambia is ranked number six out of 47 countries in doing business in Africa, particularly under the African Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA) program. Through this flagship preferential trade arrangement, opportunities have opened for African entrepreneurs, particularly women in agri-business and trade to access previously inaccessible markets like the United States.

The United States Agency for International Development’s (USAID) Southern Africa Trade and Investment Hub continues to support Zambian women to become more active participants in the country’s economy. Their footprint in the export market is becoming a success story.
