Fair Trade Skin Care: How Shea Yeleen Offers Five Times Ghana’s Minimum Wage to Women-Owned Cooperatives

In episode 102 of the Disruptors for GOOD podcast, we speak with Rahama Wright, Founder of Shea Yeleen, on using fair trade skin care to empower women in West Africa and the United States through the production, sale, and use of shea butter products. 

Rahama is creating living-wage jobs for women-owned shea butter cooperatives in Ghana. Having grown up personally aware of inequalities in the world, Rahama developed an interest in women’s economic empowerment. Making up for her lack of business experience with pure passion and determination, she started Shea Yeleen, a social impact company focused on financial empowerment and ethical sourcing. 

Shea Yeleen is a company that specializes in manufacturing high quality, organic, fair trade skin care products and utilizing a sales strategy that incorporates women’s micro enterprise development. Shea Yeleen offers five times Ghana’s minimum wage and provides access to health insurance. Its business model has a direct and regenerative community impact that allows the ongoing education of more than 268 children.
