Salomée WOROU GOURA was born in Tchaourou in 1982. Very early on, she was introduced to the trade of various food products such as corn, yams, soybeans, wholesale gari as well as the purchase and resale of sheep and oxen. Married and mother of 2 children, she acquired 10 years ago an 8-hectare estate to turn it into a cashew tree plantation. She started her collaboration with the BeninCajù project 3 years ago.
"With BeninCajù, I received a lot of training on good agricultural practices, plantation maintenance and agricultural equipment. I produced 900 kg of cashew nuts per season. For this year's campaign, I harvested 2100 kg of nuts. I was encouraged to join my local SILC group. There, I was able to participate in the savings and obtain a credit that allowed me to buy two plots in Tchaourou and Tchatchou." Salome WOROU GOURA.
Salomée's income has increased considerably with the increase in her production. She is adjusting her business schedule so that she can always follow the training courses offered by BeninCajù on production techniques and how the SILC group works, a crucible that has been of great financial benefit to her.
