Women in Eastern Nicaragua need increased market access and income opportunities. Cocobite, a coconut oil marketing service, provides women with the tools and quality control practices to turn the ubiquitous coconut into market ready, homemade coconut oil. Cocobite pays women market prices for their oil, collects and sells it to local markets. The service has the potential to double income, build financial literacy, and give women a way to start planning for their family’s future.
