Promoting women's leadership

Ranked 185 out of 188 by the UNDP in 2016 (Human Development Indicators), Burkina Faso is one of the poorest countries in the world. Pillars of society, women represent 52% of the total population and play an essential role in the economic and social life of their country.

The L'OCCITANE company works with women producing shea butter in Burkina Faso since the 1980s with an objective of co-development. Since 2013, the company has been recognized as an exemplary company by the UNDP (United Nations Development Program).

With its creation in 2006, the L'OCCITANE Foundation chose to extend this partnership with the women of this country and to concentrate its actions on supporting women's entrepreneurship to promote their emancipation.

Since its beginnings, more than 30,000 women have received support in the development and strengthening of their activities in Burkina Faso.
