Women building businesses from home with Daraz


Daraz is an online shopping site, hosting a wide variety of products and has increasingly become a place for many to start their own businesses. Many women have come to embrace Daraz; from small business owners, to startups and entrepreneurs, Daraz has provided a platform for all of them to grow their business and succeed.

Shyamala from Geeky Things sells various products via Daraz, but initially, she worked as a chartered secretary for a multinational company, working in the legal and compliance area. She says, "I mainly left my job for two reasons - my son was 13 years old and I wanted to spend more time with him and I always had a passion to start a business on my own not want to work for others."

While researching and reading about new products and ecommerce platforms, she came across an advertisement about Daraz and started exploring the site. She highlights, "I started by selling 3 solar lamps but now I have a range of over 500 products such as kitchen equipment, jewelry, kids materials, maternity clothes and so on. Daraz has been a great platform to work with. The experience I have gained is immense."

Shyamala has been with Daraz for over 4 years, but not without challenges along the way. When she initially started selling on Daraz, she found it quite difficult to understand the systems as she did not consider herself a tech-savvy person. However, with the training and exposure given by Daraz, she has been able to learn a lot of things about selling online.

Rozanne from Jewellery, Styles N Fashion accidentally became an entrepreneur when she bought three items of clothing from abroad and they didn’t fit her. So she decided to sell those clothes online, which led to Rozanne learning more about the world of e-commerce and starting up her own business. "I was working with another Ecommerce company before but I was looking for alternatives on the internet and then I found out about Daraz. I partnered up with Daraz around 3 years ago. I started this very small, but today I have been able to grow the business to a level that I never thought possible," she explained.
