New income for 5 factory workers ($700 each p.a.) and increased income for 100 farmers ($7.30 per kg of olive oil sold)

This project will help to create job opportunities by transforming unsold olive oil into natural soap.

The grant will include the purchase of equipment and other materials related to soap-making; the purchase of packaging and marketing materials, including labels; trade registration for the factory; and training and development workshops for the cooperative.

This cooperative has never received funding from elsewhere, and it is a new initiative for the village. The factory will be located in a building that belongs to the cooperative.
