Grant information

Recipient community: Women's association in Yobouekro

Village: Yobouekro, Côte d'Ivoire

Number of community members reached: 35 women

Description: The women’s association in Yobouekro asked for approximately 920 US$ to buy agricultural equipment (a cassava grinder, a cassava press, machetes, sharpening stones, hand plows, boots and watering cans). This enables the women to expand their agricultural productivity and transform their cassava into Attiéke, a local dish similar to couscous, which can be sold at a higher market price. This will improve food security and increase their earnings, allowing them to pay for school fees for their children, seek healthcare when ill, etc. (Updated Sept. 19, 2022)
