Meet the Mamas
Deborah Lekete, Soap Makers (Adenta, Ghana)
Deborah grew up in Ghana's Volta Region, the seventh sibling among three sisters and three brothers. Hardworking and determined, she studied business but was unable to continue due to financial issues. Later, a friend introduced her to Eugenia, owner of Naasalke, a Global Mamas shea butter business partner, and after spending some time in training, she began working full time with Naasalke. Eventually, she saved enough money to go back to school in 2009. She is studying administration and has hopes to one day become a manager at the Ghanaian insurance company, SIC. She greatly appreciates the way Eugenia encourages her and her fellow employees to produce high quality work!
