  •  Matr Boomie - I'm Sana - Young Living Foundation Developing Enterprise
    I'm Sana
    I'm Sana

    Sana and her three sisters are the daughters of a traditional jewelry-making family. With only a primary education, Sana had learned basic literacy and internet skills. Seeing her parents struggle to promote their jewelry business, she set up an email account and began to send messages to artisan websites in her father’s name. One of her emails was sent to a group linked with Young Living’s artisan network.  

    Since then, Sana has become the first girl in her community to go to college.

    Shaiftaa lost her mother at a young age, and with the failing health of her father, had to drop out of school after third grade to care for her three sisters. Now, through her artisan work in handmade brass jewelry with Matr Boomie, she has the power to give her two children a full education and open a world of possibilities for their futures.
