ON-COMING PROJECTS

1. CASSAVA PROCESING MILL; A SUSTAINABLE ECONOMIC EMPOWERMENT FOR THE RURAL WOMEN IN OKE AWESIN COMMUNITY,ERIN OSUN, IREPODUN LOCAL GOVERNMENT AREA OF OSUN STATE. NIGERIA.
Erin- Osun is a fairly populated city in Irepodun local government area of Osun state, Nigeria with a population of about 139,000. It is located about 359 kilometers south west of Abuja the federal capital territory of Nigeria. It has an elevation of 321 meters above sea level.

Reason for the financial empowerment
Most women in Oke-awesin are not formally educated giving no room for gainful employment so they are either farmers or petty traders. It was seen that the major crop they plant is cassava which is locally processed.
The main problem we want to address is the financial status of the women, the stressful and unhygienic process of the cassava. It is very unsafe for workers to pose health threat to the consumers.

Directly 504 people that are cassava overstress themselves in an attempt to make ends meet. It even actually limits the quantity they process thereby enhancing cassava product scarcity in the Osun State they service, As if that is not enough the unhygienic handling of the cassava producers are affected and the whole state is affected indirectly with a population of 3,423,535 (www.osun.gov.ng/about/people) as a lesser output of the end product is manufactured.

Most of the women are living below 2 dollars per day, if this cassava mill is erected as against the local process been used at present, it will increase output which will translate into money thereby financially empowering them. High production will also bring down the price thereby curbing inflation.
