Upasna’s Story: supporting women through garment making
Upasna runs her family's garment manufacturing business in Guyana. Our HerVenture programme supported her to improve her records and marketing.
We have multiple branches across the country and aim to equip women from impoverished communities with skills so that they can support themselves.
Upasna is running her family business while pursuing her PhD in management. Though she already has a strong background in business administration, the HerVenture app has supported her to build her confidence and clients.
“My name is Upasna Mudlier and I am one of the Directors of Denmor Garment Manufacturers Inc. based in Georgetown, Guyana. Our company is a garment manufacturing business and has been in operation for 25 years and counting. Denmor Garment Manufacturers is a family-owned business. When my father passed away ten years ago, the rest of the family, including myself, took over.
I learned how to harness the full potential of social media for marketing purposes, which has tremendously increased my clientele.
I have master’s degrees in business administration and oil and gas management and am currently pursuing a PhD in management. Combined with the HerVenture app, I have had great resources at my fingertips, contributing to my success as an entrepreneur.
When it comes to the HerVenture app, I have especially enjoyed the modules covering bookkeeping and digital marketing and have already implemented some of the lessons learned. Now, our records are more systematic and organized, and we also have an online presence. I learned how to harness the full potential of social media for marketing purposes, which has tremendously increased my clientele. The app also taught me key terminology, which has increased my confidence when representing the company.
Denmor Garment Manufacturers Inc. is women-owned, women-led and all our team members are women. We have multiple branches across the country and aim to equip women from impoverished communities with skills so that they can support themselves. Our business thus has an important social impact on surrounding communities and beyond. If you educate the woman, you educate the community!”
If you educate the woman, you educate the community!
