Grenadian Entrepreneurs products

Hey Friends, There are many Grenadian Entrepreneurs with great products that would make amazing holiday gifts. Christmas is a stone’s throw away and I know some of you are already busy cleaning, shopping and picking out presents for your friends and loved ones. I want to urge you, to shop local and support small businesses. Supporting them means strengthening your communities and the economy on a whole. We need to uplift and put our monies back into our societies where we can actually see the impact our dollars make.

Throughout this year I have been paying close attention to the local brands in Grenada as they grow and develop their businesses. I am proud of the products as far as branding and marketing are concerned. They have certainly been working hard at their craft and it shows. I decided to put a list of these Grenadian entrepreneurs and their products to show you some stockings-worthy fillers.

As I was creating this list, I realized that it was comprised of only female Grenadian entrepreneurs. This had me reflecting. I became excited as a woman seeing other women going hard after their dreams. It’s such a great thing for the young generation to see and be empowered by.

I hope you will find something from these 20 Grenadian entrepreneurs that would make your gift shopping easy.
