Women are important agents of social, economic and environmental changes necessary for sustainable development in a community; but restricted access to credit and training are among the numerous challenges they encounter, in addition to the global food and economic crises of this time.

Given women's large presence in the local economy of the island, EDEM's primary goal is the empowerment of women, key to the well-being of individuals, families and rural communities.

EDEM supports local women through training and access to capital. To do so EDEM has established a local micro-finance system, KOSAFI (Konbit Fanm Nan Sid), which is managed by a local grassroot organization of over 200 women.
