Seed Project COOPEREDE: Community Production - Phase 1

In the semi-arid region of the state of Bahia, one of the poorest areas in Brazil, COOPEREDE cooperative unites hundreds of women who work with cassava, horticulture, poultry and crafts seeking financial autonomy. Moeda helps buy supplies and equipment and the use of sustainable measures. By supporting this project along with Moeda, you’ll receive a 10% bonus in MDABRL in November 2019.

Take a look closer at the project
In one of driest and poorest regions in Brazil, women still live with little or no access to essential segments of society and financial power. They rarely own the land or head up their family farms. The Cooperative Network of Producers from Bahia (COOPEREDE) has been uniting and empowering 750 women in 16 communities who work with cassava products, free-range poultry farming, pulp production and jams from native fruits, along with using natural fibers and handmade fabrics in their traditional crafts. During Phase 1 of this Seed Project, Moeda's funding will offer working capital for the purchase of raw materials and inputs, enabling a refined structuring of these family units with the use of sustainable actions. By supporting this project, you’ll receive a 10% bonus in MDABRL in 12 months.

Moeda will provide a R$ 50,000.00 funding for the purchase of raw material and inputs for COOPEREDE’s productive groups.

Why this project needs support?

The cooperative seeks to execute more contracts with the government through The National School Meals Program (PNAE) and The Family Agriculture Food Acquisition Program (PAA), and gain access to private markets.
COOPEREDE needs working capital in order to have better conditions to negotiate the purchase of raw material and inputs and, ultimately, streamline its production.
