With the support of the Born Free Foundation’s Global Friends grant scheme, this community-run enterprise is now in its second year of operation. With start-up finance, business training and technical support, this women’s group has now generated enough sales income to finance their own production and distribution to various community outlets, including LWT.
The project has generated funds for the community to help reduce poverty at the household and group level. It also encourages the sustainable utilisation of baobab fruits and an understanding of the use-value of wildlife, in that there are financial incentives for conserving nature. The enterprise is now running without our support.
