THE CREATION OF A LEATHER AND SKIN FINIISHING PLANT AND A SHOE PRODUCTION PLANT
Project owner: Société du Cuir et de la Chaussure du Niger (SCCN SARL)
Estimated cost (USD): USD 1.532 million
Estimated cost (FCFA): 765, FCFA 802 million
Niger has two tanneries, whose treatment techniques are used to make Wet-blue and Crust products. However, the country does not have a plant specialized in leather and skins for use in certain leather goods and in the industrial manufacturing of by-products: which makes this project all the more relevant. Its main objective is the construction of an industrial complex equipped with a modern leather and skin finishing unit and a shoe production plant with an annual capacity of 232,000 pairs. This would consolidate the participation of the leather and skin sectors in the economic and social development of Niger, while preserving the environment.
- Abundance of raw material: Niger is a big producer of leathers and skins due to large livestock herds and the slaughter volume of its many abattoirs;
- Strong existing national demand and inexpensive export potential to countries of the ECOWAS region due to the absence of tariff and non-tariff barriers;
- Construction of a store close to the factory for efficient sale of finished products to stake holders;
- Development of the entire value chain while reinforcing the leather and skin sector’s contribution to economic growth.
