GOOD FOR YOU, GOOD FOR THE WOMEN WHO MAKE IT, GOOD FOR THE ENVIRONMENT.

ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT

The team at Baraka Shea Butter are committed to improving the economic, political, and social well-being of the communities that produce our shea butter.

Initiatives to improve economic development in the communities where we work include:

  • INCOME GENERATION

    Baraka Shea Butter works with Amina Yussef, a local development practitioner, to train the women’s groups on income generation activities. The women receive training on basic micro business strategy and economics, as well as various activities that will allow them to generate income, often by making products (e.g. soap, bow-fruit etc.) to sell at the local market. By doing so, the women not only receive valuable training but can add additional income to their household using the skills they have developed.

  • MICRO-CREDIT SUPPORT

    We encourage our producers to become involved with organizations and projects that can provide micro-credit support to their income generation and development efforts. By supporting local micro-credit projects where possible, we contribute capital that can be used for lending to provide capacity development support. It also enables training for the organizations so they can take advantage of other opportunities to provide assistance and support.
