Mariam OUATTARA, supported by RONGEAD since 2003 to develop the cashew nut shelling done by craftswomen in Ivory Coast, is amongst the 16 winners of the D-Made Competition - 24 June (70 finalists, 600 participants).

The Development Marketplace for African Diaspora in Europe (D-MADE) is a new and exciting opportunity to access grants financing entrepreneurial projects that are designed by Africans, to support the development of Africa. Based on the very succesful global Development Marketplace, for the first time such a programme will target Sub-Saharan Africa-wide members of the Diaspora living in Europe.

Mariam OUATTARA, who achieved her doctorate at the University of Grenoble (France), is at the origin of the project of cashew nut shelling in Bondoukou and supports the development of the groups of women of the COPABO (agricultural cooperative of cashew nut producers in Bondoukou).
