160 women participate in the Wothie cooperative. Each one of them is responsible for a 200 metre squared plot. The land, which was previously unproductive and abandoned, was given to them by the chief -the traditional leader- of the community. When women participate in the field work, up to an estimated 50% more is harvested. Thidé, Mauritania.
