Avon has always been a company that has strived to help women. For more than 125 years, Avon has stood for beauty innovations, optimism and, above all, for women. Going back to the very beginning, Avon established its direct selling program with its first Avon Sales Representative, Mrs. P.F.E. Albee, in 1886. The company has had a long-standing tradition of helping women succeed financially and personally.
Through their direct selling program, they support over 6 million Representatives worldwide. Providing women with an opportunity to earn a stable income and work to a flexible schedule encourages them to go out there and succeed. Additionally, Avon’s social initiatives have helped support women who are victims of domestic abuse or fighting breast cancer.
One of Avon’s most harrowing and touching stories is an extraordinary lady, Khanyisa Ndyoko. A 43-year-old, single mom of two beautiful children. Last April, she was diagnosed with breast cancer. She discovered the lump herself but postponed going to the doctor as it was not painful or big. When she finally consulted a medical practitioner, she was diagnosed with cancer.
Avon has been a support system for her, and while she does have a full-time job, being a Sales Representative has helped her achieve security. With Avon, she has been able to take better care of health and general well-being.
“Being a Representative changed my life completely and it is one of the things that helped me cope with having breast cancer especially during treatment. While I do have a full-time job, being a Representative strengthened my faith and made me realize that nothing is too big for God. Suddenly, I was able to achieve so much more than I thought was possible. Personally, it also enabled me to take that much better care of myself and my health.”- Khanyisa Ndyoko.
Avon continues to work hard to help women all over the world. They have had a direct impact on millions of women’s lives, helping them to find their footing whether it be financially or personally!
