Meet the Mamas
Maxwell Boateng, Soap Makers (Adenta, Ghana)
Maxwell has been working as an electrician for Naasakle, a Global Mamas shea butter partner, since 2008 and looks forward to his future with the company. His wife Halena trades in skin creams and hair products, and together they support their three children. They are proud to be able to put their children through school, especially because Maxwell remembers the hardship of growing up in a family supported by selling oil and corn. "Some days were good, some days were bad," he recalls.
