Marina Rakotondrasoa
Madagascar 2023
Following her father's footsteps, Marina Rakotondrasoa, a rural development officer, learned to work with farmers. After studying Agronomy at the Université Athénée Saint Joseph Antsirabe, she set up Massöva, which offers processed coconut and cocoa products. As an entrepreneur, she has developed strong leadership skills and the ability to manage businesses and communities. Through the GRASP initiative, she hopes to better understand the agricultural sector's political and regulatory aspects and develop her persuasive skills to make her business more successful and improve the agricultural sector.
My ambition is to work on better production techniques for consumers and the environment. I hope the GRASP Fellowship will teach me the best way to do this
