Traditionally, Rwandan women like Epiphanie Mukamurenzi would be confined to domestic chores, with her husband in charge of anything concerned with household income. Now the Rwandan Government- with support from the UN’s International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) - is empowering women like Epiphanie to be equally involved in the management of their family’s finances, creating a new gender equality model for the country.
