Today, we celebrate women in business around the world for Women’s Entrepreneurship Day! This is a day for us to reflect on all the women around the world that Bajalia has empowered to strive for more in their business, including our own CEO who started Bajalia to help empower women globally through jobs. Women’s Entrepreneurship Day (WED) is a day on which the work of women entrepreneurs is observed, discussed, and celebrated, held on the nineteenth of November of each year.

Described by Fortune Magazine as “a global movement to celebrate and support female founders and shed light on some of their challenges.” Forbes Magazine wrote that the intention was also “to mobilize a global network of female business owners, entrepreneurs and change makers who support and empower this community of women entrepreneurs and their businesses.”

To commemorate this day, we spotlight our artisan Shabina. She is an experienced artisan who has been in the handcrafted jewelry business with her family for many generations. The opportunity to make more jewelry through Bajalia’s distribution channels provides many jobs for her family and women in her village of Rakanpur. Here is a picture of the Shabina and the women artisans in her village. Shabina is pictured on the left next to Bajalia CEO Debbie Farah.

The artisan work that is done in the village of Rakanpur is passed down from generation to generation to support the families of the village. “My family has been in the jewelry business for many generations, it is the only work for women in my village”. Shabina said. Providing opportunities to women in emerging markets is Bajalia’s mission. Shabina adds, “We need more work to help more women care for themselves”. The more distribution opportunities the more jobs that Bajalia can offer to women in the village of Rakanpur. Bajalia looks forward to the day when these great ladies will not have to worry if work will be available for them and their families to survive.

We celebrate Sabina and all of our women like her for working to change the world. We love to keep giving Shabina and the women in her village opportunities by selling her handcrafted items available on http://www.bajalia.com. Help empower women in business. Every purchase made will help women artisans around the world. cropped-dsc_0631.jpg
