Angelica Elliot launches Incabrit, a business creating fashion accessories such as wool scarves, jewellery and leather bags.
Angelica Elliot, The founder of Incabrit approached The Women's Organisation seeking business support and was excited about finally starting her own business with support from The Enterprise Hub.
Before starting up, Angelica Elliot had worked a number of different jobs, from working to help the homeless to being a full time special needs teacher in Chile. When asked about venturing into self-employed, Angelica said “at this stage of my life I wanted, for many years, to create different products from the comfort of my own home but continue being financially independent from my husband.”
Speaking about the support she received from the The Women’s Organisation, Angelica said, “I received support from my business adviser, Francine Taylor. The free courses are also very good in quality and it’s a process of constant learning which is what I need to keep doing”
Incabrit launched in December 2017 and Angelica is starting to focus more on her marketing and gaining social media knowledge. When asked about the advice she would give friends looking to jump into self-employment, she said “Go to The Women’s Organisation and be brave enough to jump into it and give it a good try”
