Improving the livelihoods and wellbeing of women fish retailers: Success stories from the STREAMS project in Egypt

This booklet presents stories of women fish retailers in the governorates of Kafr El-Sheikh (Lower Egypt) and Fayoum (Upper Egypt). The livelihoods of these women retailers were supported by several market interventions implemented under the Sustainable Transformation of Egypt’s Aquaculture Market System (STREAMS) project. The project is funded by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation and led by WorldFish through the CGIAR Research Program on Fish Agri-Food Systems (FISH), in cooperation with CARE International Egypt. The women retailers describe the interventions and the impacts these have had on their own wellbeing and on the wider community. The results offer insights into potential future interventions and strategies for sustained support of these stakeholders.
