Beautypreneur Programme

Business skills and training for aspiring beauty micro-entrepreneurs

We launched this new programme in October 2020 to support women in low-income households in Gujarat and Rajasthan.  Our implementation partner in India is SAATH Charitable Trust.

Our aim is to provide business skills training for 180 women so they can start their own entrepreneurial enterprise in the Beauty & Wellness sector.

Each of our beneficiaries has completed a vocational training programme in beauty techniques.  This second phase of the programme covers formal training in business planning and management and takes one year to complete.

Once certified, our beneficiaries will be fully equipped to manage their own beauty business and earn a sustainable income.

They will also be qualified to train other women on the three month vocational training programme, adding to their income stream.

  • Agri-management Services has the capacity to deliver lasting change for our farmers. I have always felt that the farmers feed our nation while they can hardly afford to feed themselves. What an irony. So if my team and I are able to help farmers earn a sustainable income through agriculture, there’s nothing better than this.

  • Farming is my only source of income... I registered with Shivia to learn how to reduce my farming expenses and produce better quality outputs. I am definitely seeing good results compared to previous years and have learned how to make bio-pesticides.
