MULLERES DE SEU

Mulleres de Seu is a working group composed of female members of the Feiraco Cooperative which aims to promote women’s development and dignify their role in rural areas, promoting integration in the cooperative and encouraging their participation in the governing bodies. To do this, we promote specific training activities in which female members improve their capabilities and skills for the integral and efficient management of their dairy farms.
