This is what the young dynamic entrepreneur presently based at New Delhi, Miss Gifthy Kikon is revealing by her strong determination she is doing through the website, www.gifthykoko.com with clients from abroad beside the domestic market too.

Yet, from last year, she is back with a bang – by mostly taking part in Expo/Exhibitions.

Some of them are: Northeast Fest at New Delhi, International Hospitality Expo in Greater Noida, Forex Expo at Jaipur and Maison Objet 2019, France.

According to her, Nagaland like any other state has got immense talents but due to lack in latest machineries and funding – the demand/supply relationship cannot be made.

That’s what she is at New Delhi though already has an office here at Nagaland.

Her present business has promote the local artisans; in same time help them to earn.

She also mentions that she is focusing to promote women entrepreneurs from North East India. Through her endeavor, she is promoting handicraft products made by artisans themselves, but which people in general are not aware of.

The products are made by wooden utensils and items made from bamboos.

It is pertinent to note that there are demands in foreign countries especially like the one she is presently dealing with. And many states from India also appreciates the Northeast India produces as souvenirs, etc.

Finally, she encourages the young Nagas in particular to, “Once in mind made, one should work on it until we achieve.”
