How did you find the experience of pitching to the judges during the final?
It was an incredible experience. I was very nervous but once I saw the other pitches, I was very inspired and it felt great to be part of this amazing group. I felt very good about my presentation because it gave us a good opportunity to showcase our work to the world.
How did you find the experience of being at the WTO Public Forum?
It was great. My goal is to be a speaker one day so it was good in that sense.
How did you find the using the Export Action Plan tool and what impact did it have on your business?
It was great. It gave me the opportunity to make a clear plan with clear goals and processes and structure. I had not structured my export strategy like this before.
Looking ahead, what’s your next step now as a business?
Our main goal is to expand LHAMOUR globally and distribute to more countries in the world. We want to expand our product line and share our philosophy of loving yourself, loving others and loving the environment to as many people as possible around the world.
What three tips would you give to other MSMEs looking to enter international trade?
Have a clear vision, focus on building a good foundation and then believe in your products and services and have no fear.
About Lhamour (Natural Essentials LLC)
Lhamour is committed to making a positive social change in Mongolia and around the world, every step of the way, starting from the raw materials we use and where we source them, to employment of the marginalised and giving back to the communities and the environment.
The world is changing fast. They say: be the change that you want to see.
We could sit there and wait for others to come and fix our problems. But we live on the same earth and have the same 24 hours, so why not start ourselves? We, as the young people, want to create a world we want to live in and our future generations. By doing it ourselves, we want to empower others so that they can do it too.
Love yourself, love others and love the environment. LHAMOUR was established in 2014 at home from the kitchen with the dream to create a Mongolian brand that provides healthy, high quality, natural skincare products. What started out as one person’s dream turned quickly into something much greater, something that would inspire the youth and fix people’s skin problems as well. Something that was scalable and that people started to share all around the world as you can see with our distributors who have become entrepreneurs themselves– from Hong Kong ,Taiwan all the way to India, Thailand and Canada sharing our philosophy.
LHAMOUR’s vision is to be a change-maker – to create a more sustainable future for our next generation.
We give value to people by providing natural skincare products through zero-waste production that are freshly handmade like warm bread in the morning with unique Mongolian ingredients for the health-conscious person who wants to create social impact through a purchase.
Love yourself, love others and love the environment.
