Carolina Alvo – Owner of Carolina Alvo
Carolina Alvo is following SFS Radio’s best advice. Find a problem and solve it. Carolina is petite and was tired of buying clothes that the sleeves were 6 inches too long. So, she is building a company dedicated to clothing for shorter women, a huge segment of the market. Her brand creates wardrobe essentials for petite women. Despite the reality that 50% the women in the US are under 5’4”, shopping for clothes drove Carolina into entrepreneurship. She shares her story with us today and we find that she is doing almost everything right! Look for her new line soon.
