(Business in Cameroon) - In Missingueléo, in the Far-north, not all the women dedicate their days to household chores exclusively; most of them also produce gravels which are used on local construction sites.

This hard but rewarding work is the result of the ACP programme in the framework of which the European Union and the UNDP disbursed CFA8.5 billion (€13.1 million).

According to UNDP, Missingueléo women were able to boost their revenues and have better living conditions thanks to this initiative which was launched in 2016 and will end this year.

Elaborated to improve the management of quarries, environment protection and respect of community rights, the program aims at improving the revenues of women and youths, minimize the environmental impact on communities, facilitate the knowledge of individual and community rights and as well ensure decent working conditions.
