General Manager
and Store Manager Bucharest

Simon Suitner was born in Austria in 1982. He has a degree in Social Work and has worked in many different social care facilities. Simon speaks German, English and fluent Romanian.

“The idea behind SOMARO is as simple as it is brilliant! It helps solving two current problems of our society: On the one hand, there are food products and essential everyday objects that cannot be sold anymore on the first market and, on the other hand, there is a large number of people who need these products but cannot afford to buy them on the first market. I am filled with joy knowing that I helped build up this project, that I work on a daily basis to implement it and that it is beginning to bear fruits.“

“Working at Somaro, besides earning my living, means full inward satisfaction that I can help those people going through difficult moments of their existence. I hope that this SOMARO initiative will expand because there are still many people who need help.”

Cashier and Shop Assistant

Liliana Ilie is Romanian.  Born in 1972, she was a seamstress for almost 10 years.

“Given the fact that we are going through a difficult economic situation, I think that the idea of starting the SOMARO initiative was a great help for the education and self-respect of the Romany community. Since I spend some time with these people while they are shopping, I can say that I’m impressed to see that they are really pleased that they can afford to make purchases with the little money they have.”
