We are providing simple technology to improve business activities of women groups in the fisheries sector
Women in Lhok Kruet Village, a coastal area in Western Aceh, take on additional tasks to support their family income. One of these is small scale production and sales of processed fish such as dried anchovies and shrimp-based products. At the national level, the price of dried anchovies ranges from IDR130,000 to IDR190,000 per kilogram, depending on the type and quality. Women in Lhok Kruet Village currently sell their products to travelers or passersby for approximately IDR75,000-IDR150,000 per kilogram, which is much lower than the national price.The women’s groups are practicing an inefficient production process. The current drying method for anchovies and shrimp is floor drying, where fish are spread out on a tarp/net sheet on the ground for up to two days (depending on the weather). This method puts the commodities at risk of spoilage due to rain and other contaminants.
THE EXPECTED IMPACT
By supporting the women’s groups in the fisheries sector with simple technology, we expect them to practice a more sustainable production process to improve the quality of their products.
