Marshal Papworth Short Course – Harper Adams University – 2019

Talato is a Production Manager for URBAPK/COS, this is a union group of rural women working in almonds and shea butter based in west-central Burkina Faso. There are 1,418 women-only members in the union. She attended the ESCO-IGES college in 2012–2014. Qualification – Higher Technician Diploma in Business Administration and Accounting.

Talato is the intermediary between the women who supply the raw materials and the union. Her roles and responsibilities are:

  • Organize the collectors of the raw materials
  • Follow the field choppers to obtain biological certificates
  • Organize the delivery of the raw materials
  • Follow the traceability of organic shea butter
  • Organize the outputs of finished products

On returning home Talato hopes her training will allow her to better organize her work in production and allow her to train more than 2,000 women who she works with in agriculture. She also hopes to learn new skills in climate change that will be used to enable the structure to cope with the social and climate changes taking place in her environment.
