Summary

The project is meant to back two groups of small entrepreneurs who work hardly to make a difference in their home by producing and selling artisanal jams, pickles, canned vegetables and other regional products based on local resources like prickly pear cactus, palms and citrus. They belong to two small rural isolated villages where ACDI arranged to organize and equip two elaboration centers. Women's challenge now is to sustain their business alone and we are looking for people who can help them.

Challenge

Historically, Taco Ralo and La Madrid are politically, geographically and economically isolated. In this rural context, with no work, men leave to look for an employment in the city or a temporary occupation in plantations. Women stay home alone, with 2 or more child, without options to improve their incomes. So ACDI, together with the National Ministry of Social Development, managed to install two elaboration centres and train 40 woman that now have the challenge to sustain this spaces.

Solution

This project will provide raw materials, habilitation to trade products and technical support in order to start-up the two small associative business and give women the possibility to have, autonomously, a new source of income and stand for their families.

Long-Term Impact

The project will provide a new source of income to 40 women, giving tham the possibility to rise out of poverty through an economical empowerment, which will provide for their families health and well-being.
