The Amazon Saheli Program of the online retail giant Amazon in India is a special program through which women entrepreneurs are being supported and promoted through a special Amazon Saheli Store. This program was rolled out in November 2017, and since then has impacted thousands of women entrepreneurs across the nation.
Amazon Saheli Program started in partnership with non-government social service entities named- Self-Employed Women Association (SEWA) and Impulse Social Enterprise. All the products in the Saheli Store are the ones that are produced locally by women entrepreneurs.
Benefits of joining the Amazon Saheli Program
The whole program has been made in order to provide assistance and support to women-based companies and for this, Amazon has a list of benefits that will be available to all those who become a part of this initiative. Some of those advantages are:
2. Training support will be available on how to Sell on Amazon to kickstart the business
3. Amazon also gives the option of an account manager that will guide the women entrepreneurs in the initial 30 days as a seller.
4. As part of imaging and cataloging support, professional product photoshoot and product listing support will be given to get the account started.
5. All the Amazon Saheli Products will also be displayed on the specialized Saheli store on Amazon.in to help the business owners get noticed by more customers.
The Amazon Saheli stores have been taking advantage of the program and what was once only sold locally, is now being able to reach millions of customers across the country.
