Founding Story: What inspired your venture? Why?
I got the idea for Snail after I visited a rural place in the Moulay Yacoub area in Morocco. I went there to participate in social activities with an NGO. While talking to the people and especially the women working there, I learned about how they collect snails in the villages and then sell them to different exporters. They were complaining that snails are becoming rare, and they couldn’t find enough as many as they could in the past. So I asked myself if it would be possible to do some snail farming to solve that problem.
Because by establishing snail farms, it will both: increase the production of snails & help to preserve this natural resource in the region and also ensure a stable income for the women who will be involved in this project.
