Women doing business in the Sertão (hinterland)

The infertile soil and semi-arid climate in Bahia have made agricultural production difficult. The situation is compounded when we focus on the social, economic and cultural circumstances that face the women from the region. The Women of the Sertão Seed Project - Phase 1 will improve the structure of the groups that are affiliated with COOAFES to boost the income of these women and strengthen their families. You receive a 10% bonus in MDABRL by supporting this Seed Project along with Moeda in December 2019.

COOAFES organizes family farming ventures in the Bahian countryside that produce grains and cereals, profit from cassava, fruits and milk, and work with poultry, goat raising and baked goods. Moeda will contribute R$ 52.500,00 to develop local productive potential, make it easier to access new markets, and raise incomes. Through your support for the Project, you boost the autonomy of women in the Sertão (Brazilian hinterland), help establish 8 Sustainable Development Goals, and receive a 10% bonus in MDABRL over 12 months.
