In a remote hilly area of Eastern Botswana, 1,100 rural women producers are forging a new model of rural development. Spread across 25 villages in the Tswapong Hills, the women are harvesting and marketing a range of natural resource products. Working within Kgetsi ya Tsie Womens Community Trust, they are harnessing traditional, indigenous knowledge to the demands of the international marketplace. Supported by a revolving loan fund to provide capital for equipment and supplies, they are generating an income to support their families.
