Agricultural extension and education on rural women’s toward micro-credits programs


Bahar Hatami Karimi


Accepted 01 February, 2017

Since credit organizations have formed the base of people’s participation, it is a good opportunity to use these communities to develop training-extension activities. So, it is better that special programs at different extension areas, such as agriculture, ranching, family health, housekeeping economy and other courses according to the conditions of the regions and rural women’s needs, should be considered. Extensional education should be a provider of opportunities for rural women in order for them to be able to use educational facilities, access the needed credits, be familiar with new jobs and finally, know their legal status. Furthermore, educating rural women is considered as an intangible need of rural women communities, which thus improve their level of technical knowledge. Also, it is important to increase rural men’s technical knowledge, by facilitating the propagator’s educational duties about educating male farmers.

Key words: Agricultural extension, rural women, empowerment, micro-credit.
