What do you like about doing business in Ohio?
I love the attitude of the customers in Ohio. They always seem genuinely intrigued in the social aspect of our brand. They ask a lot of questions and take interest in the nonprofit organizations we support.
Description of business:
Arova was founded to support a nonprofit organization who is empowering women in a disadvantaged area in India. The women create beautiful up-cycled goods from upholstery remnants. We quickly came to realize there are many small, nonprofit organizations and artisan cooperatives that are lacking a sales channel. In addition to buying their goods at a fair price, we donate a portion of all sales back to D.I.R. (www.dir-help.org
). In 2014, we look forward to offering additional support by purchasing equipment, offering additional programming, and more.
