Sidi Slimane – A total of 180 projects with a total budget of 20 million dirhams (MDH) were carried out during the 3rd phase of the National Initiative for Human Development (INDH) 2019-2023 in the province of Sidi Slimane, as part of the program to improve income and economic inclusion of young people.

This program consists of two axes, namely income improvement and support for the entrepreneurial spirit among young people. Under the first axis relating to income improvement, 150 projects were financed for a total cost of 14 MDH.

As for the second axis, around thirty projects benefited from support with a total value of 6 MDH for the benefit of 130 people, 50% of whom are women.

These projects focus on supporting cooperatives in several priority production sectors in the region, namely aromatic and medicinal plants, crafts, horticulture, the promotion of beekeeping and honey products and the construction of buildings.

This support contributed to improving the income of a group of cooperatives which benefited, in addition to material support, from downstream and upstream support in order to guarantee the success and sustainability of the project.

In a statement to MAP, the head of the Income Improvement and Economic Inclusion Program for Youth in the province of Sidi Slimane, Amal Benabdi, said that this support will help the beneficiary cooperatives to develop and promote their local products and to establish themselves on national and international markets.

Some fifteen cooperatives that have benefited from the support of the INDH within the framework of the axis relating to the improvement of income, are 100% women’s cooperatives and operate in the rural world with the aim of improving the working conditions of women, she specified.

According to Ms. Benabdi, cooperatives working in activities related to agriculture, namely horticulture, beekeeping as well as the production of olive products, are very active at the local, regional, national and sometimes international levels.

This is the case for Biolive, a women’s cooperative founded in 2020 by Hafsa Annab, which exploits sustainable olive resources and recycles olive pomace to transform it into essential ingredients for innovative dermo-cosmetic formulas.

According to Ms. Annab, the project started small before receiving support from the INDH which allowed the cooperative to market its products in all regions of the Kingdom and in several countries around the world.

For her part, Chaimae, manager of a beekeeping cooperative in the rural region of Twirsa in the province of Sidi Slimane, indicated that the support of the INDH has enabled the cooperative to obtain several quality certifications, notably from the National Office for Food Safety (ONSSA) and ISO certification.

Launched in 2005 by His Majesty King Mohammed VI, the INDH is part of an overall vision structured around three components, namely the political process of consolidating the modern State, reforms and structuring projects generating growth as well as human development in its economic, social and cultural dimensions, based on the principles of good governance through information, monitoring and accountability.
