Family Support

A family returns home in a remote village after receiving their wages for a week's worth of work. In this community, it is the women, who provide most of the income for their families through the hand extraction of argan kernels for an argan oil producer based in Essaouira. The method of extraction has been passed down to women by generations, and has only recently become a source of income due to global demand for argan oil. It takes 30 kilograms of fruit and 15 hours of labor to produce just one litre of argan oil.
