Laurette Ratsimbazafy is an Agricultural Engineer. In 2012, her good results at the Higher School of Agricultural Sciences at the University of Antananarivo enabled her to study for four months in France. On her return to Madagascar, she joined the Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock as Head of the Regional Livestock Department in Analanjirofo, in the east of the island. Since 2020, she has been the Regional Director of the Agricultural Development Fund in northern Madagascar. As part of the GRASP initiative, she wants to acquire new skills in lobbying, negotiating with partners, and female leadership in relation to agricultural policy.
