Women entrepreneurs fighting against malnutrition in Burkina Faso

As part of the programme for Promoting family farming in West Africa, in November 2015 GRET launched a project to structure a social entrepreneurship model for selling local quality fortified products for children aged between 6 and 23 months, and pregnant and breastfeeding women in poor urban areas of Ouagadougou. The Laafi Benre project follows on from a pilot project initiated in 2012 in partnership with Aseff, a Burkina Faso association. GRET supports local fortified food production units, as well as the strengthening and extension of the sales network, and is conducting a detailed diagnostic study on the production and marketing of local and imported nutritional products in Burkina Faso. These actions are strengthened by awareness-raising campaigns with local populations on best nutrition practices, led by ASEFF. With this new project, GRET is envisaging the consolidation of this social entrepreneurship model, which will make it possible to provide populations with local food solutions to fight against maternal and child malnutrition.
