What’s your name? Tamarima Abdulai

What are some things you like?  A dog is my favourite pet because it provides us security at home.  T.Z is my favourite food because it is the most common food at our area. I like reading during my leisure time.

Do you enjoy school? I have recently completed Senior High School; I love to read.

How has Deluxe Shea Butter helped your community?

The Shea butter business helps my mother to take care of the family. I help her with the business anytime I am free. Through the Shea butter business, my mom has been able to support me to complete my SHS (Senior High School). I currently attend extra classes through the support of my mother’s business.

Do you like working with Shea? I like the aspect of roasting the nuts. I wish to become a professional teacher in the future. I like teaching because it engages the brain to work all the time and they support the development of the society.

Tell us about your history? Life has not been easy for us when we were growing up, but I have to work hard to support my mom in doing her Shea butter business. My mom used to sell cow milk but it does not have much market. Shea butter gives more profit although the work is very difficult.

What about the future? I’d really like to become a teacher.

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.

Sana Danaa of the Sankapalla Dakoliyili community is a grandmother of 3 and one of our most experienced shea pickers.
Sana’s underprivileged childhood meant that her parents could not afford to send her to school. With a burgeoning family of her own, Sana has to work 3 jobs to be able to send some of them to school for better employment opportunities.
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.
Anda Awudu takes pride in producing the best shea butter in Ghana! She’s dedicated to providing for her community.
