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. SEAL grant consists of an oil separator with a capacity of processing 2,000 liters per hour which is expected to increase olive oil production by 40%.
