Rahimatou Razak has been a member of the Alaffia Shea Butter Cooperative since 2004.
As a child growing up in rural Benin, Rahimitou helped her family gather shea fruit to sell.
Rahimatou has seen many of her peers leave their families and homes to work on plantations in other countries.
She says that one of the best things about being a member of the Alaffia Cooperative is that she is able to support her three children while living close to her family.
Thank you for all you do for the Alaffia Cooperative, Rahimatou!
