OLVEA - Fair trade vegetable oils producer

Yesterday was #InternationalWomensDay !

OLVEA has been working to empower women in rural areas of Burkina Faso and Morocco for years, through its supply chains, its Philanthropic Fund and its Moroccan charitable organization Marocavie. In Burkina Faso for instance, we are working with more than 22.000 women producers of Shea nuts, which provides them with an additional source of income, some economic independance and sustainable livelihoods.

Since 2013, OLVEA has also financed 6 literacy campaigns, from which more than 700 people (mostly women) have learned to read, write and count.
