WEGG: Clearing the Path for Women to Take on the World

Through collaboration and a passion to help small businesses succeed, EXIM Bank and Women Entrepreneurs Grow Global (WEGG) were able to arm KOVAL Distillery with the resources and support needed to exceed its global business growth goals.

One of WEGG’s members, Sonat Birnecker Hart, president and co-owner of KOVAL Distillery, hosted a WEGG workshop and also presented at the event. KOVAL Distillery produces organic whiskey, liqueurs and specialty spirits that are sold throughout the US, Europe, Canada, Australia and Asia.

Ms. Hart says:

“We recognized that as our export business grows, it would behoove us to have a system in place to be able to send over more product and build stronger relationships with our partners. Having the support of EXIM Bank allows us greater flexibility to meet the needs of our growing markets, while providing us with the security to aim higher,” Sonat explained.

The two organizations, EXIM Bank and WEGG, will continue to work together and cultivate these opportunities for women entrepreneurs throughout the US.

WEGG’s work revolves around educating and helping women entrepreneurs and business owners export their products and services throughout the world.

What’s most important is to do your homework.  That makes everything you face so much easier and it also provides a level of confidence on what you know you should do next.

Make the Most of Social Media Networking

Genecia Alluora Luo (pictured), founder of Soul Rich Woman (SRW) network and former Miss Singapore tells Việt Nam News reporter Phương Uyên that her mega mission is to empower Southeast Asian women to succeed in business.  Her aim is simple: change their lives for the better. Sounds very familiar to WEGG!

In the information age, to get in touch with customers, gain market share and arrange inventory, I [Genecia Alluora Luo] suggest the women make the most of social media networking, online shopping and delivery platforms. And by giving women entrepreneurs more access to capital, resources and investment opportunities, we can accelerate economic growth in the region, Việt Nam included.

Genecia hopes to encourage more and more women to advance and continue helping others run a [global] business successfully and make extra income, no matter how big or small.
