In Ghana and most part of West Africa, Women are the major producers of Shea butter. Shea Butter offers these women the opportunity to employment and their earnings feed, clothe, and educate their children. Over 16 million African women make a
living from Shea Butter Production.
At Danielle & Daisy, we source our Shea Butter directly from women Run organisations in the northern part of Ghana. Doing this ensures that we get our Shea Butter from direct source of production. This also means that we get the finest quality hand-crafted Shea butter that delivers the best results for our customers.
Trading directly with women Shea Butter producers means also that we place revenue in the hands of the women, they get what exactly they have earned and removes the middlemen.
Naana Co Founder of Danielle & Daisy, being a Social Worker have worked and supported women and children for many years, this zeal to carry on supporting women was brought into forming Danielle and Daisy. We at Danielle & Daisy strongly live for supporting the community, supporting women especially widows, single mothers and women with brain injuries. We work hard to promote Women Empowerment especially the empowerment of the African Women - We know that when a woman is financially secured , she can change the lives of her children, her family and her community. Danielle & Daisy are inspired by the strength, the beauty, the dedication, the creativity, the experience, the stories the women share, the journey they have travelled and the dignity of which these women live by. We seek to support and make a difference in their lives and their communities.
My name is Ramatu and I am from the Upper West Region - Ghana. I have for children and have been making and producing Shea Butter most of my life. I started working with Naana (Ama) many years ago when she would come to Ghana for visit and purchase Shea Butter for personal use .
When she set up Danielle & Daisy and started working with our company she has been buying her Shea Butter in Bulk from us. Producing Shea butter and having a steady market product has changed my life. My children are in school and I am able to support them through the work.
My hopes and aspirations include helping my children further their education, pay for their health insurances, having them nicely clothed and having enough money to do other types of business."
My name is Hawa. I always supported my family on Shea butter production as I come from a family of sheabutter producers.
I have 5 children of whom I support through education , shelter , clothing etc. Before I met Danielle and Daisy, we were just supplying small quantity now I do hope that with their support, I can sell more sheabutter in order to get more money to support my children . If I do not get sales, I wouldn't be able to support the children through schools so the more , I sell the better chance I get to support my children.
My name is Maame Bozoma and I am from Half Assini. I used to go to the seaside to buy left over fish and fry to sell. This was ok when my husband was alive and working to support however after he died, I could no longer care for the 6 children on my own doing the petty trading. I met Danielle & Daisy some years ago when Naana came to do some charity work in Ghana. She supported me to start coconut oil making business. Now I make and supply Coconut Oil to Danielle & Daisy for their cream production.
The money I am earning has enable me to send the children to school , I am able to get healthy food on the table and cloth myself and the children . Life is a lot better and I am thankful to the support given to us by Danielle & Daisy
Our connections with the women we have met and continue to meet have changed the focus of our business.
We realised that our encounter with these women and the business we do with the women have the potential of changing lives by alleviating poverty and providing them with income to meet the needs of their children.
