Location: Benin, Abomey Calavi Duration: 2017/2018

Partners: AJEDD Description of activities: Purchase of machinery.


  • At the end of the micro-credit project for 16 women in the “Ma joie” group, all the women in the group asked us to start another project: the purchase of agricultural machinery. Indeed, they work together in the exploitation of several cassava fields. In order to reduce the arduousness of their work and to reduce their daily working time, they need adapted machines. (press, mill ect …) They also wanted a sewing machine so that they could take lessons with the group’s seamstress. They have so far received a press for cassava and a sewing machine, other machines will arrive as and when possibilities are available.
