Luciana*, a Venezuelan migrant, says that thanks to her taste for fashion and being a personal image consultant, she started selling women’s clothing to her friends and family.
I have a talent for sales and had to take advantage of this ability to generate income and cover my expenses.
But the profits he generated were used for his daily expenses, so his business could not grow. She was part of “Mi Pana Emprende” within the framework of the project “Assistance for the well-being and inclusion of migrant and refugee families in Peru”, implemented by Save the Children with the support of BHA / USAID. Thanks to her business idea being viable, Luciana* received seed capital and was able to open her own physical store called Khanela Fashion.
I designed the logo myself and had some bags made to dispatch my products, I update my social networks where I promote my business on Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp. Every day I am gaining followers who become my clientele.
