DURBAN - Avon Justine has launched an initiative to provide women with sustainable earning opportunities while playing its part in empowering talented, yet undiscovered, local female entrepreneurs.
Nishani Singh, Director at Avon Justine Pty Ltd said "We have immense entrepreneurial abilities in our country, but ability, unfortunately is nothing without opportunity.
Access to opportunity is key to empowering people to attain their true potential. This is our invitation to the women of South Africa to become their own boss, rekindle their entrepreneurial spirit while they have the flexibility to take care of their own families".
"Our initiative, also has significant potential to create a ‘knock-on’ employment effect. Many of our beauty entrepreneurs, in addition to creating employment for themselves, have managed to grow to the point where they are able to create additional job opportunities for others. This creates a positive social impact at a time when South Africa needs it most," added Singh.
Avon Justine also aims to upskill South African women when it comes to harnessing the power of digitisation by offering smart business tools like the new Avon On Application – a digital tool that allows beauty entrepreneurs to place orders, access social media content and create their own content to promote on social media channels. Delivery of Avon Justine products has also been made quicker and more convenient by the company’s new direct delivery functionality.
