Imagine being able to improve the quality of daily routine for many, or perhaps most of the women throughout a rural Tanzanian village as well as reducing the families’ household costs. Imagine too being able to improve their living conditions so that they will suffer less long-term disease. Imagine being able to do all these things at once, and at the same time contribute to environmental conservation. And, finally, to make sufficient cash profit from this venture to provide you with a long-term livelihood of your own. This is just what Agnes (aged 30) and Dorothy (20) are about to do in the village of Mgama.December 8, 2017
