Hamamat Montia is a Ghanaian model and a former Miss Malaika queen. Her beauty and most especially her natural darkness has helped her attract a massive international following, and her social media handles attest to this easily.
She hails from Bolgatanga in the Upper East region of Ghana, and got her high school education at Achimota School.She is aged 32 (2020) She is a mother of two daughters.
Shea butter is common from her home region in Ghana, and as an international model, she has taken advantage of this to become an entrepreneur, not just making profit out of it, but also offering employment for her locals as well.
One must understand that, its basically the most basic work found around for older women, who through this Shea butter business support their families, example, paying fee for their girl child to attend school. She has therefore provided a means, where international clients can buy fro her, and she intends purchase from the locals or have a group employed, who help her meet her growing supplies.
Directly, she is creating tourism as well, as she boasts of a museum of some sort, that interested foreigners book in advance, to plan and visit to have an entire experience of her village and the process involved in the making of the Shea butter.
"The women who make the best sheabutter in the world live in the village , so we spend most of our time in the village.
This is me with some of the children in the village. We took this photo after a football match on a Sunday.
