As a child, collecting shea nuts was the only way that I could make money to survive. Since working for Kina Africa, processing shea butter has greatly improved my life and gave me a feeling of joy that I could only imagine just a few years ago. Now I can provide my children with food and other necessities.
As a single parent, I sometimes worry about my daughters’ future, but working here gives me hope that they will grow up to be productive members of society. Kina helps me pay for their education. During the offseason of shea nut harvesting, my girls help me with our corn farm.
