The targeted rural women in this project are expected to produce “Coffee Honey”, where those targeted women for this project are living close to a coffee farm, thus expected to produce coffee honey.
Having the facility of the grinding mills close to the vicinity where the women are living will definitely reduce the workload, thus allowing them to get more time to be involved in income generating activities.
