Memunatu Mahamadu

Memunatu Mahamadu is from the Buiyili community, she has 5 children and 3 grandchildren. She always has a smile on her face!

To make ends meet, Memunatu farms, sells charcoal to burn and picks shea nuts. Memunatu is such an inspiration to us all in her desire and effort to provide food, clothing and education for her loving family. Well done Memu, we couldn’t be prouder of you.

With so many mouths to feed she barely has time to relax. Memunatu wishes for better access to grinding mills because this would help make her life a lot easier. With the money that working for Deluxe Shea Butter generates, Memunatu is hoping to one day build a room for her family and to also pay for their education.

What’s your name? I am Memunatu Mahamadu from Buiyili.

What is your favourite food? I like rice with beans.

Tell us about your family? I have 5 children and 3 grandchildren. Sakina Mahamadu is my first born and she is 20 years old, married with three children. Alhassan Mahamadu is the second child, he is 15 years old and has not been to school. The third is Abdallah Mahamadu, he is 12 years old and deaf, he has also not been to school. Karima Mahamadu is the fourth born, he is 8 years old and currently in school. The fifth is Urbaida Mahamadu, she is 1 year old.

What do you do for work? I pick Shea nuts, farm and also burn charcoal to sell. The Shea picking helps me a lot as I am able to make money from it, of which I am able to provide food for my family, buy clothes for myself and my children. 

Supporting the Women of Ghana

Here at Deluxe Shea Butter, it’s the people behind the product who make it all happen. Our fair trade products are a direct result of giving members of the Ghanaian communities a fair go with a fair day’s pay for a fair day’s work.
