Natasha: Lifelong Entrepreneur

When I was a little girl, I loved creating beaded jewelry. I would craft for hours with my little bead kit. Any time I got allowance money, I invested it in more beads. My parents always taught me that if you wanted something, you had to work for it. Although they provided a comfortable life for me, I was not just given everything I wanted. So I would take my little creations and lay them out on a card table in front of my mom’s apartment building with a caboodle full of coins I dug out of the [...]

Sierra’s Sseko Story

Long, long ago, way back when the Fellows Program wasn't supposed to be a real thing, I found it, and made it my thing. I was in Jim Thorpe, PA with my Husband for my birthday weekend getting ready to hike our favorite place, Glen Onoko falls, and saw that there was a small festival going on around the train tracks. I immediately plastered myself to the window shouting "Look, a Fair! It's Jim Thorpe's Birthday too! Let's stop!" This might be a major indicator as to why the first brave piece I was ever gifted was Whimsy, but [...]

Jessica: Reflecting on my first year as a Sseko Fellow

There are honestly so many things I love about Sseko but the one thing that keeps coming to my mind is the community. There is a special bond of friendships that happen when you become a Fellow and the relationships that happen with the amazing women in Uganda is so powerful. I love that we are all in this together. It’s not a race for someone to get there first, we are here to encourage one another and look at the bigger picture and dream together of an independent and bright future. […]

The Freedom of Schedule

Meet Shanda, a woman powerhouse, who used Sseko to control her life and put her family first. Hear her story of how her life took a 180-degree turn for freedom and flexibility… Recently, I have been reflecting back to June 2017.  This was one of the hardest months of my life. After a bout of sickness, my youngest son Matteo, was diagnosed with epilepsy caused by fevers and overheating.  News no parent ever wants to hear.  I was fearful of not only his safety but what my life would now look like because of this change. […]

From Sales to Sisterhood: Karen’s Story

The mission of Sseko and what it’s doing across the globe for women, was what first drew me to the company. I volunteer for non-profits and am on the board of an anti-sex-trafficking coalition in my community, so everything Sseko is about gets me so excited! I had dabbled in direct sales in the past, so the “selling” side was familiar to me. Since I loved Sseko’s mission already, I was excited to be part of this amazing company once I heard they had opened up the opportunity to be a direct seller of beautiful Sseko products. What I didn’t [...]
