GIE Targanine is an economic interest group composed of 6 women's cooperatives each producing argan oil and other Moroccan products. In total, these cooperatives represent more than 550 women members, carrying out the collection and crushing of argan fruits. GIE was created with the aim of providing support services to member cooperatives (product quality, traceability, organic certification , commercial promotion, etc.). It exports argan oil, certified Fair Trade since 2010. In addition to the guarantee of a remunerative price for women, the fair trade project of the GIE has funded many social-community actions (literacy, nursery, schooling, access to the water, etc.), medical (access to medicines and care, etc.), environmental (solar panels, planting argan trees, etc.), or cultural (excursions for women, participation in traditional festivals, etc.). In just a few years, the project has contributed to the development of women and their organizations, making them important local actors in areas where women traditionally depend financially on their husbands.

Le GIE Targanine est un groupement d'intérêt économique composé de 6 coopératives féminines assurant chacune la production d’huile d’argan et d’autres produits de terroir marocain. Au total, ces coopératives représentent plus 550 femmes adhérentes, effectuant le ramassage puis le concassage des fruits d'argan.Le GIE a été créé dans le but de fournir des services d'appui aux coopératives membres (qualité du produit, traçabilité, certification biologique, promotion commerciale, etc.). Il exporte l'huile d'argan, labellisée équitable depuis 2010. Outre la garantie d'un prix rémunérateur pour les femmes, le projet équitable du GIE a permis de financer de nombreuses actions sociocommunautaires (alphabétisation, crèches, scolarité, accès à l'eau, etc.), médicales (accès aux médicaments et aux soins, etc.), environnementales (panneaux solaire, plantation d'arganiers, etc.), ou culturelles (excursions pour les femmes, participation aux fêtes traditionnelles, etc.). En quelques années, le projet a contribué au développement des femmes et de leurs organisations, en en faisant des acteurs locaux de première importance, dans des régions où traditionnellement, les femmes dépendent financièrement de leurs maris.
