The client is a co-operative with over a hundred members. Membership participation is proportional according to the financial and in-kind contributions of individual members, and it operates other businesses besides aquaculture. The farm itself, besides the main business of fish production, produces bananas, poultry and goats.
Currently the level of knowledge and experience at this enterprise is relatively basic. The task at hand was to bring the client up to a new level of efficiency through technological improvements. Due to the structure of the enterprise which is a co-operative, a much wider cross section of the community can leverage the benefits of assistance provided to a large number of economically impoverished people.
A new set of tools to achieve the co-operatives’ goals has been delivered to the enterprise, and if used well, will make a considerable difference to the economic profitability and productivity of the business. The community will benefit from a new food production system and improved nutrition.
