This cooperative currently has a 50 hectare olive farm, with a storeroom, that produces excellent organic virgin olive oil. However, in order to comply with international standards, the coop needs to adapt to more modern techniques and purchase an automatic filling machine.

This project is incredibly supportive of women entering the workforce, mainly due to the mechanical harvesters’ light weight and ease of use. It will create 6 new jobs and double the coop’s profits due to increased market value of the olive oil sold in smaller bottles.
