The unions COPROMA and Dadin-Kowa aim to substitute gari imports in the Dosso BoP markets, with locally produced gari. They plan to do this by increasing cassava production and processing, and establishing a more efficient distribution system. They aim to provide low income consumers in Nigeria with cassava products at competitive and affordable prices comparable to imported products. Special attention will be paid to gender by the inclusion of women and youth in the gari value chain. The union also wants to strengthen the technical capacities of small cassava producers and women's mini-processing units.
