Through the Strengthening Institutional and Economic Resilience in Yemen (SIERY) Project, funded by the European Union (EU) and supported by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), women in Aden and Hadhramout took part in technical training and were supported with grants to launch their own tuna canning businesses at home.

In Aden and Hadhramout, UNDP provided specialized trainings on business continuity management, finance, accounting, and marketing. During an exposure and exchange visit to Hadhramout, which was part of the training program, participants learned from one of Yemen’s top fish associations about effective association management from a business operations lens. This included insights on managing sales, generating income and revenues, budgeting, maintaining quality standards, and marketing. Additionally, the participants had the opportunity to learn from tuna factory owners about supply chain processes.

Moreover, while most participants were provided with grants to start their own small tuna canning businesses at home following the training, Foqom Women’s Tuna Association was supported to establish a tuna canning factory in Aden. As the tuna factory nears completion, it stands as a beacon of hope for sustainable economic development in Yemen’s coastal communities. Equipped with machinery that adheres to stringent quality assurance standards, the factory is poised to contribute significantly to the local economy while ensuring the responsible utilization of marine resources.
