This project will take place in São Miguel do Tocantins, state of Tocantins. The regional rural working women’s association will have its production diversified by the implementation of areas producing mamona and urucum. Mamona oil will be extracted in the same plant used for babassu oil extraction. These areas will be agroforestry systems. Working capital will also be increased to enable the association to reach the break-even point in their activities. Capacity-building activities will also be offered to the associated women in local biodiversity medicinal plant use.
