(Business in Cameroon) - GIZ, a German development agency, is currently building a store in Gashiga, not so far from Garoua, Northern Cameroon. The infrastructure, official sources indicate, will host German equipment that will be used in the construction of a non-timber forest products’ processing plant.

That way, women of that area will no more have to extract neem, tamarind, shea, and baobab oil using traditional methods. By the way, the women associations of that area have been trained in the use of the processing plant.

According to GIZ, the construction of that processing unit will not only reduce the drudgery of processing works but also, and above all, improve the quality and quantity of the production. In some cases, production will increase fivefold, the development institute indicates.
