“As a not for profit organisation we have a focus of supporting woman in dairying in New Zealand to be the best they can be both on and off farm,” Dairy Women's Network CEO Jules Benton said.
“We are focused on delivering support and providing ongoing valuable insights into good business opportunities and best business practice for our members and these understanding your financial position practical workshops will empower our members to have better discussions with their bank.”
