Yamama’s Secret Beauty is a shop for wellbeing and beauty. With the support of YEP, Mama A Banja started her own business that produces and sells natural products and offers massages and cosmetic treatments.
Mama realized that many people on her community needed wellbeing and beauty services. “Usually massages are only provided in hotels, so I decided to learn and open my own shop to offer these and other beauty services to my community. A lot of people need massages to relieve stress and pain”.
At her shop, natural organic soaps are offered made from local and organic products such as: moringa, carrot, coconut and olive oil. She also offers body and facial treatments, manicure, pedicure and assists pregnant women who suffer of body pain.
“I advise other people to go for their dreams and find the courage to start their own business. In the future, I would like to have a big center where I can provide training and employ young people. I would like also to empower young girls to become independent and start their business. For me, the sky is the limit”.
