Woman of the week: Francisca Veccio, Argentina

Aug 3, 2018

Franca joined Avon back in 2014, at a time when she was facing gender violence and a complicated divorce. She knew that joining Avon would give her the opportunity to focus on herself, earn business skills and gain independence.
4 years later, she is running her own beauty business! Franca is now a Mother and Grandmother. Flexible working hours help her manage her own time so that she can focus on what really matters: spending time with her family, her favourite activity.
What she enjoys most about being an Avon Rep? Having overcome her experience around gender violence, Franca is passionate about helping others who are living through the same problems that she went through in the past.
She also enjoys empowering other women through beauty, and has a team of Representatives that she supports to help grow their own businesses.
Her favourite Avon product is the fragrance Sweet Honesty because it reminds her of when she was young, though she proudly clarifies that she would recommend all Avon products for the great quality they provide.
