In western Ghana where palm fruit is abundant, the business of processing palm oil is passed down from family to family. For the women of these villages, many of whom are illiterate single mothers, inheriting this business provides them with their sole source of income. Over 40 women have combined equipment and labor to form the Dzinpa Adom palm oil processing group. While the group is profitable, the income generated is minimal as the oil goes rancid due to the lack of a storage space
Women will become competitive in the market and will earn a sufficient living.
Build a warehouse to store surplus oil for lean times, sell to the highest bidder, and house an office for bookkeeping and administrative activities.
