Project General Description

The present project preparation mechanism has been initiated in order to facilitate the start of the Enable Youth-Côte d'Ivoire project, ensure its good preparation and quality at the entrance. The Youth Employment Project in Agri-business - Enable Youth Côte d'Ivoire aims to build the capacity of young Ivorian graduates who are motivated and have the idea of starting businesses in the agricultural sector. Approved in 2016, this project is part of the Bank's Enable Youth program, which is a response to the high youth unemployment rate through agri-business in all African countries. The aim is to train and empower these young so-called "agripreneurs" (and thus lead to the creation of new agricultural enterprises, 50% of which will be owned by women). Its implementation will create economic opportunities and decent jobs for young women and men along priority agricultural value chains.

Project Objectives

The sectoral objective is to contribute to food security and the creation of employment and wealth, especially for young people. Specifically, the project aims to increase income for young graduates who would like to engage in the development of promising agricultural sectors.


The beneficiaries of the project are the ivorian young people, residing on the national territory (50% men, 50% women) graduates with a minimum level Bac + 2 whose age varies between 21 and 35, not having a paid job during the program.
