Local fruits and vegetables processing
Women members REFDAF live overwhelmingly rural. These women farmers do not have access to natural resources, or inputs, or land. Their "farming" then remains confined to small areas where they grow a little grain, vegetables. They do not have access to distribution channels, the latter being completely dominated by men. They live mostly small informal trade which allows them to provide just the minimum. Depending on the area where they live, they offer on the roadside (if the area is not too enclosed) various products ranging from fresh and wild fruits, vegetables, medicinal plants, craft items.
