Annie's Project--Risk Management Education for Farm Women, is a program designed around specific educational and social needs of Midwestern farm women. Farm women, young and old, (ages 19 to 84) participate in the 6 workshops for a total of 18 hours. Teams of instructors, which represent University Extension, government and private agribusinesses deliver educational programming in the five areas of risk: production management, financial management, marketing, legal issues, and human resources. Annie’s participants learn about personality characteristics and traits through True Colors. Also, they learn about money management, constructing a business plan, financial documents, marketing, ownership of assets and leasing issues. Instructors not only teach, but also encourage interactive discussion and debate among the women. In this environment women find answers and build their confidence by sharing experiences. To accommodate lively discussion and an environment that fosters questions, the groups remain fairly small in size from 8 to 30 women, with the average size of fifteen. Key local instructors are recruited and trained so women can begin building their teams of professionals and network support.
Topics include: business plans-the process of building a business plan, how property is titled, and leases and legal issues.
