Our partners at Zenab for Women in Development recently shared with us that the women of Women Farmers Unite are working hard to obtain oil mill machinery in order to process their sesame seed and groundnut crops. Oil is extracted from sesame seeds and groundnuts by mechanical pressing, and is a lucrative product in local markets. Obtaining oil mill machinery for these women farmers will offer increased income-generating activity and self-employment. Rather than packing seed crops and transporting them to and from the city for mechanical pressing, the women farmers will be able to save time, money and energy, and maximize their profit, by eliminating third party oil millers. We look forward to bringing you more updates once the oil mill machinery is in use!
