Warm greetings and thank you very much for your generous support to our project providing pump-priming assistance to coconut-based women entrepreneurs.
This initiative is gaining traction as our barrios are mostly coconut-producing and with planting distance of 10 meters x 10 meters, there is a lot of agro-economic activity that can be done in order to improve the productivity of the farm. There are high-valued crops that can be grown aside from vegetables and this reporting period we are promoting the growing of cacao and then providing value by the processing of cacao fruits into artisanal chocolates. Cacao grows well in partially-shaded area and our country is one of the places where cacao grows well.
We aim to include 500 women entrepreneurs in this venture, later on organizing them as a local association. Hoping for your continuing support.
