The project is being carried out in Tangiers. The aim is to train women who already exercise an activity, to help them leave the informal economy and set up their income-generating project. The sectors concerned by the project are fair-trade tourism, well-being and beauty and health products based on plants (oils, soaps, infusions) and the home catering sector (catering and delivery of meals, cakes).
Training includes explanation of legal requirements, of the responsibilities of each partner in the running of a cooperative venture and also, the calculation of the cost price of a product with illustrative exercises for products proposed by each participant.
