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. "
