This project is designed to improve the quality of olive oil as well as increase the capacity of the mill [by expediting the oil extraction process.] It will enable more farmers to benefit from the services of the mill, while improving the quality of their olive oil. In addition, it will allow local farmers to come together, exchange information and collaborate, building stronger social links between farmers in the surrounding areas.
The cooperative has already received grants of equipment from Mercy Corps and USAID, and has cooperated with the Ministry of Agriculture.

Annual olive oil production is expected to increase by 40% as a result of this project.
