History

Tous pour assurer une vie digne et équitable à la femme rurale

The founding cooperatives of the Targanine Group are located in remote areas, even landlocked. This geographical remoteness as well as the lack of expertise within these cooperatives in terms of product marketing gave rise to the idea of a grouping that would make it possible to federate the 6 units, pool their strengths, and centralize the marketing of their products both locally and internationally. The creation of the EIG was anything but easy.

Indeed, it was necessary to face socio-cultural obstacles such as those posed by the patriarchal character of the society in these remote Berber villages where it is almost systematically necessary to go through the spouse or the father who must endorse any step of the wife or the daughter. Thus, it was essential to undertake upstream sensitization work especially since the members of these cooperatives are illiterate with few financial resources, not to mention the digital divide that makes any contact with the outside world impossible. The EIG, the first of its kind in the Souss Massa region, was created in 2003 and now has 6 cooperatives and 65 employees, including technicians, quality managers and assistants, cleaning operators, administrative managers, etc.
