Shea Butter comes from the village of Nassian , the largest of a sub-prefecture in the north of Ivory Coast, inhabited by the people Kulango . A group of village women formed the cooperative " DAA WO -RI , which Kulango language means " there is help . "
Thanks to a project to import " fair " , the cooperative earns from the sale of butter a price up to 50 times the official price of the market. In this way, women who work there are able to participate in building a school in their village , and to improve their lives . And they have recovered a traditional activity that was disappearing because of ever-lower prices of Shea on the local market .
