Semotile means ‘to spread’.
This project makes peanut butter from peanuts, which they grow and plough themselves. They also buy peanuts in order to make up their orders. They then grind the peanuts into a paste and work it until the texture is smooth and when it becomes oily, they know it is ready. The peanut butter is sold to local schools for feeding schemes. They also sell packets of peanuts.
The ladies explain:
“We started this project because we realized that mostly we sat around, doing nothing. We did not want to sit around and gossip, but wanted to aid in alleviating poverty and to help others.”
