Pajeu Network of Women Workers

Associação Rede de Mulheres Produtoras do Pajeú (Pajeú Network of Women Workers, Pajeú) works with women to diversify their income streams beyond agriculture through microfinance, technical and marketing skills training, and networking. This income diversification stabilises livelihoods especially when droughts reduce agricultural yields.

“As I am a farmer, this was a huge learning experience for me. I had no idea how important communications was for fundraising. This is something I learned during the strategic planning. It’s now easier for us to share our work and mission with the materials we produced.”

– Maria das Neves Caldas, President, Rede de Mulheres Produtoras do Pajeú
