Note from the sponsor : These women are determined to overcome poverty. They have joined forces in a group and are well organised. They have requested help from Eco Bénin to structure their project, a reliable local association. If we can provide them with financial resources, I am convinced that maybe it can help prevent rural exodus and poverty.

Empower 60 women to access means of livelihood and financial self-reliance: the “Michité” (Rise!) group members are fishermen’s wives. Due to the slowdown in fishing activities, the women have decided to regroup in order to develop and diversify their individual income-earning activities. The group includes 60 women, organised in 5 sub-groups corresponding to 5 activities: cassava culture and processing, vegetable farming, breeding of pigs and goats, mat weaving, production of red oil.
