"I'm in Asia and the Pacific Incubator Network. The main focus of my work is fashion and design promotion. Example, we have 29 sewing center network in the Philippines. I participated in the previous corresponding forum, which was held in Brazil two years ago. It impressed me.


artisans are incubators for new and globally. For example, Africa has a lot of interest in them. My passion is to help women micro-enterprises in developing countries.

It will be interesting to see how the fashion industry artisans and small entrepreneurs operating in Finland. Fashion entrepreneur is often left aside - our network to help in other areas such as garment and textile sector.

I came to Finland at my own expense, and I'm going to take advantage of the journey, visit to St. Petersburg, Moscow and Berlin. I will return to Helsinki, an international business women's conference a couple of weeks. "
