About my work:
We do belive that our business is reducing/fighting agianst poverty and Climate change in the rual communities and remote villages in Ghana.
We are buying our raw materials from small farmers and oil producers in this communities which is giving the income to help part of thier daily needs especially the women.
We also have our women group that we work with in zuwarungu conkowa community in the upper east region Bolgatanga.
We have mobilize over 325 women that we are working with in the production of our virgin grade ( A) shea butter ,147 men that also produce Straw Baskets,Hats,Leather products and Indignoues musical instruments, due to lack of asses of getting international markets/orders and funds from the banks.
We have currently reduce our workers to 50 in which they work on contract basis (in other words) they work when we have contracts/orders.
Any good ideas that will help us expand our productoin to help this groups are welcome come on board.
We are also planing of giving 5% of our net profit to the community water project.
