My name is Yassine and I come from Morocco. I completed Islamic Studies in Fès, but couldn't find a job after graduating. Then I was fortunate to participate in training provided by the Promotion of Rural Youth Employment (PEJ) project.
There I learned how to produce cosmetics and care products from plants. I became self-employed after my training. My trainers helped me at every step. Now I produce soaps, creams, ointments and oils made from natural ingredients.
I mainly use social networks to organise my product sales. I have also renewed contact with my fellow students from Asia. They returned to their home countries after their studies. Now they help me sell my products there. My Moroccan argan oil is especially popular in Asia!
