With the pandemic wiping out jobs and businesses in just a matter of weeks, one company is on a mission to help women maintain their livelihoods.
Lavier, most notable for distributing their beauty and wellness products across Asia, has launched a program focused on helping women start a business of their own.
Dubbed the Entrepreneurship Development Program, the new initiative is designed to support women in their entrepreneurship journey, all via a step-by-step, hand-holding approach.
The 2-month long program aims to equip participants with all the necessary support, resources, and mentorship, as well as exposure to effectively grow their professional network.
Participants will also be eligible to receive exclusive rights to distribute some of Lavier’s upcoming products, which already has significant demand in pre-orders.
Since 2018, hundreds of women have started an online business of their own, some generating as much as USD $150k in monthly revenue.
In a statement with News Asia Today, Vice President of Lavier, Serene Yap, mentioned that her dream is to provide a platform to empower women entrepreneurship on a greater level, and to play a part in supporting her country’s economic recovery.
We believe that women could play a tremendous part in the country’s economy, and it is through starting businesses that create more jobs for the masses. We believe Lavier would not only provide a platform for them to build a sustainable stream of income, but also become a source of strength for them in their lives.
To ensure participants gain the most out of the program, Lavier is currently only accepting 20 applicants per batch.
Applications for the next program batch close on 20th July, interested individuals can apply via the official form here.
