Greenkraft

Business partner since May 2017

Bangalore Greenkraft Producer Company Ltd (Greenkraft) produces furniture and home decoration products which are socially, environmentally and economically sustainable. They are made from natural fibers, such as banana leaves. The products are sold in around 100 stores across India and exported to a number of countries. Global retailer IKEA is one of its customers.

Greenkraft, a key initiative of Industree Foundation, enables local female artisans to unite in so called self-help groups (SHG) and gain access to markets that would otherwise remain inaccessible to them. A number of Greenkraft’s SHG’s are shareholders of the social enterprise and thus involved in the running of the organization.

Jointly, Women on Wings and Greenkraft will work on increasing the number of jobs and livelihoods opportunities for women in rural India engaged with Greenkraft. It is also a joint target to ultimately increase the income of the women.

“Fantastic experts, board members, employees and other stakeholders support us in our work and share the same ambition: to take rural families out of poverty by creating employment for women.”

Co-founder at Women on Wings
