Summary

The project is meant to back 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 small rural isolated villages where ACDI arranged to organize and equip elaboration centers. Women's challenge now is to sustain their business alone and we are looking for people who can help them.

Challenge

Rural communities are politically, geographically and economically isolated. In this context, without work, men leave home to seek employment in other locations. Women are left alone at home, in charge of their children, without many options to improve their income. Thus, ACDI managed to install two production centers and train 40 women who now have the challenge of maintaining these spaces to overcome their situation of vulnerability and extreme poverty.

Solution

This project is a comprehensive accompaniment towards these groups of women entrepreneurs. ACDI offer spaces for training and group strengthening, through the accompaniment and advice of a territorial promoter in each of the places where the women's groups operate for the growth and sustainability of enterprises. This project will provide raw material for production and technical support so that women can independently sustain a new source of income and support for their families.

Long-Term Impact

ACDI provides training spaces on local food production, marketing, resource management, marketing, leadership, women's empowerment, among others. In this way, we generate installed capacities in the groups, which will allow them to set up a sustainable business over time, to improve their economic and social situation and provide well-being to their families.
