Alaffia Shea Butter Cooperative Member Highlight - Sarata Fousseni
Sarata began handcrafting shea butter with her mother when she was a child. She has worked at this craft for 20 years.
Sarata's husband is older, and is not able to help support their four children. Before joining the Alaffia Shea Butter Cooperative, Sarata was a farmer, but her farms did not yeild enough to meet the needs of her family. Joining the Alaffia Cooperative has enabled her to support her children and make repairs to her home.
Sarata has been a member of the cooperative since 2003.
Thank you Sarata for all your hard work as a member of the Alaffia Shea Butter Cooperative!
