Mentoring for entrepreneurs allows the menteed entrepreneur to increase his development as an entrepreneur while being able to have the necessary perspective to better assess his options and make his own decisions . It allows the mentee to be guided in his function by taking advantage of the experience and advice of his mentor. It is also a great networking opportunity for the mentee because the mentor can open his network to him.

Instruments to promote the empowerment of women:

In Madagascar, the Constitution and a number of written laws recognize the equal property rights of women. Among the relevant laws, we can cite:

  • The 2010 Constitution (Articles 6 and 34) guarantees everyone the equal right to property and declares deprivation of property illegal,
  • The Law n ° 2007-022 of 20 August 2007 on marriage and matrimonial regimes, guarantees 2 spouses the same rights and obligations, guarantees to spouses administer all the property of the community, the husband can not alienate movables and buildings without the consent of either.
  • The Law n ° 68-012 of 4 July 1968 relating to estates, wills and donations dedicated equality of man and woman
  • The ordinance n ° 60-146 of October 3, 1960 relating to the land regime modified by Law n ° 2003-029 of August 27, 2003, admits the right of the woman to claim rights on the building registered by the husband in case rights fraud,

Brief overview of the problems related to access to land in general and women's access to Madagascar:

- The Malagasy legal framework grants women the same rights as men with regard to access, ownership and control of land, and allows them to participate in decision-making on land issues, but however, in practice, women remain in a situation of inferiority due to the persistence of certain customs and traditions. As a result, the number of women holding land in their names is a minority. Customary law, which is still practiced in parallel with constitutional laws, requires women to access land through their fathers, brothers, husbands or other men.

- In theory, Malagasy women have the right to conclude contracts in their own name such as credit agreement, real estate, commercial transactions, etc. but they face several failures due to the deep attachment of society to customs.

- The laws governing access to land are complicated because they have been accumulating for several decades. They are only partially updated and are mainly written in French. Consequently, a limited number of citizens can have access to all of these texts, understand their spirit and the procedures.
