Due to its proximity to salt water from the sea, by the irrigation of open plots, the scarcity of rain and the absence of humidity, the community of Faoye has important assets for the exploitation of salt. The DIAM BOUGOUM women's association, which brings together 60 women from the community, has been exploiting and marketing salt for years. However, the women must face many obstacles to ensure the income derived from this activity. 

On behalf of Santander BEST Africa, with the collaboration of PROSALUS and SAPOP, we support the women's association by facilitating the acquisition of new materials and equipment and offering training in management and accounting and in the marketing and commercialisation techniques necessary to increase the income derived from the exploitation of salt in Faoye.
