Am I Eligible to sell on benang.org
benang.org is a marketplace for the B40 tailors and seamstresses, designers and fashionpreneurs.
It is a social enterprise initiative of the International Women’s Federation of Commerce and Industry Malaysia (IWFCIM) supported by the Yayasan Hasanah under the HSG2020.
Our key objectives are to eradicate poverty and empower the B40 women tailors and seamstresses to have unlimited, borderless opportunities to sew clothes.
Benang (a Malay word for thread), when stitched, creates a strong bind between fabrics. It symbolizes support and unity, an integral foundation to build healthy communities, extending opportunities to all walks of life. Benang is a platform of opportunities for the underserved to be a part of the economically vibrant fabric of society.
We encourage like-minded parties to be a part of our benang.org community.
