Income diversification  for family farms in Alagoas

ASPROBROAS was started in 2010 to promote social actions that lead to income generation and strengthening of sustainable family farming in Arapiaca, Alagoas. ASPROBROAS provides professional training for women to form productive networks, which helps to empower these women and essentially improve the overall quality of life in the region. The project plans to create a new course in the “creation of associations” and free range chicken farming for 15 women between the ages of 25 and 50.
