CHALLENGES of rural women is our challenge and let us unify and overcome this challenge, according to Honiara City Council Clerk, Rence Sore.

Rence said rural women and girls often face restricted access to productive resources, such as land, agriculture inputs, finance and credit, extension services, and technology.

“This challenges limits the agricultural sector’s efficiency. Traditional and cultural norms make it more difficult for women to gain access to public services, markets and institutions, social protection and decent employment opportunities,” the City Clerk said.

He said as a City Clerk of Honiara City Council, in particular as a child of rural woman, bred and fed in a rural setting. Am glad to say that our rural women deserve the respect that is due to them.
