Bondowoso Woman

Do What You Love … Love What You Do!

A powerful quote that always become my favorite quotes, and yes I do love my job! to be an entrepreneur in fashion business for 8 years, it was not easy to pass till today, but I did it. Because I do what I love, and I always try to love every single step I do.

I try to remember all those days I passed to achieve what I have today, it was long and winding roads. There were lot of obstacles, challenges, and of course Joys I passed. I am not gonna say that I am successful person, there  is still long way to go, but I am thankful to God of what I achieved until this day.

Working in this business, is not merely talk about profit and loss, or become so popular because people know your brand. The most important thing is … mimamia can support people to achieve what they dream as well.

Since 2014, we started our private company in Bondowoso city, we have been working with local people, especially multi-talented women that supporting our team to produce best fashion products for you.

We hire our team, graduated from Fashion School in Bondowoso (Vocational High School), and most of them are coming from low income families, that could not continue to higher education level.

They are beautiful teenagers with beautiful personality, they also have “big dream” to achieve higher education, and become a successful woman someday!

By running this business in Bondowoso, a small town in East Java Indonesia – labelled as one of the poorest district in Indonesia, we help government to create “job vacancy” for them and pay them higher compare to other jobs sector in this city.

We also allow our team to have part time job, take some day off if they want to continue their study to the higher level. Usually they will take day off on Saturday to join their Saturday- Sunday college.

Beside working with our main team, we also work with co-team. They support us by working from their home, mostly they are mothers from low income families, who want to support their family life.

And the most important thing is .. all of we do is not because of me that help them pursuing their dreams, but all of this is because of Allah ..everything is coming from Him, and will return to Him
