The group aims at helping Guingouiné women to achieve financial autonomy and increase income revenue.
TMG-CI provides financial support and training to the cooperative Mesagô, gathering 32 women and led by a mother of seven and a widow, Ms Makonie. Their main source of revenue is culture of cassava, rice, corn and okra. They sell their products on-site. Most of the time, outside buyers come to the fields to buy. Some of the harvested products are transported by 3 to 4 women in the nearest city Douélé in Man department. These women lack means of transportations and resources to optimize their sales.
