I am Sonia, Founder of Olanova is a for profit company based on SLC, Utah that operates a non-profit subsidiary Olanova Global with internacional presence in 3 countries but expects to be in every single country in ten years. We are an eco-friendly fashion organization that helps women to become self-reliant.
We provide local jobs to seamstresses single moms and immigrants. We teach them the business tools and give sewing machines for them to be able to provide for their children.
I was the daughter of a young-poor single mom. Growing up in poverty, I had to learn how to survive at a young age but I didn't get here alone and for many of us, life has only purpose by giving back.
Our concept is simple: you donate your slightly used, unwanted clothes and fabrics and we re-purpose them and re-create beautiful new clothes that is available for sale.
If your company is looking to expand your market, Olanova has affordable sponshorship options for you, We need fund to pay rental, utilities, eco-mobile,etc., in order to run our organization; and we host fashion shows to promote ourselves and sell our refashioned clothes. We have already hosted our first fashion show on May.31st in Salt lake city, and we are planing for another show on Nov. 1st
We have done so much with so little in a very short time, however, we need more. We don’t have enough donations to meet their needs. We have 22 women waiting to be mentor and to get sewing machines. With your support we can.
If you believe in Olanova's mission and would like to support them/me as your friend, a minority immigrant "bootstrapper" entrepreneur, please donate us.
Even a penny helps!
