This month, our local director Josianne Yabadi together with some of our female leaders from Afokantan, joined Women’s day celebration. Afokantan is our cashew processing facility in Tchaourou, Benin.

The event was hosted by URFPCTAS – ZC * a Union of Women in growing, collecting and processing of cashew and soy. Topics ranged from female rights in general, to access to land and also included an award for the most influential woman in the agricultural domain.
