Ouagadougou Baobab Fruit Processors

Burkina Faso - Fruit, nuts and fruit preserves

The La Saisonniere association in Ouagadougou works to promote economic and social rights and involves 60 Burkinabé women in training courses for various income-generating activities. As well as holding courses in literacy and women’s health, the association also manages a nursery in which baobab trees and different vegetable varieties are grown. The leaves and fruit of the baobab, rich in vitamin C, iron and calcium, are processed and sold to promote their consumption at a local level and fight malnutrition. The women have opened a small store to sell the products grown in their vegetable garden, as well as soaps they make themselves, and they have also opened a small restaurant where they cook the food they grow.
