Olga's story

My name is Olga, I came to the United States 17 years ago from Otavalo Ecuador from an artisan family to look for more opportunities. When I came for the first time, I worked for my sister-in-law in the South American handicraft business selling at festivals in different states and I learned all about the sales industry. Some time ago, I separated from my sister-in-law to start my own handicraft business to help my husband and support my 4 children. The hard part was learning to find the market where I could sell my handicrafts and I learned to look for bigger festivals and have more opportunities in sales.
