Tell us about you and your work experience

My name is Johanna, and I was born in Cali, Colombia. I’ve been working within the Latin American community for more than ten years. First, I started this venture in a DVDs shop. Then, I changed my business into a convenience shop, in which I started selling a variety of Colombian products. Since then, I’ve been adding more variety of products and services.

Tell us more about Ivany Store

Ivany Store started as a tiny local shop in the Elephant mall until recently. Then, I decided it was time to move into a bigger place, and I went for it while London was in the middle of the pandemic. Due to this situation, I’ve had to shape my business based on what we’re living right now. I have added essential goods such as food to keep my store open during the pandemic.

“To keep growing, we must reinvent ourselves based on the situations that we could be facing.”
