Thanks to the implementation of multifunctional platforms (MFP), the economic development of Africa’s poorest regions is now possible.
The process consists of a diesel engine, equipped with an electric alternator, which enables the use of basic farming machinery (grinding mills, cereal hulling) and to power various working tools (welding machines, woodwork tools, or battery chargers). This also allows for water and electricity distribution in the villages.
This mechanisation allows women to devote more time to their children and frees them from long and tedious chores. This also encourages them to develop other activities to increase their income. Their contributory participation to the social dynamics and economy of the village propagates a more independent status and bestows them with enhanced responsibilities, such as financial management of income generated by the platform.
The multifunctional platform stimulates an autonomous economy via the increase and/or the mordernisation of artisanal activities of rural societies and stimulates access to both cultural and professional training.
