Why Kindly Shop?
Kindly Shop was created during the times of pandemic when our own businesses had come to a halt. We felt the need to contribute to the reactivation of small businesses and above all, encourage the local population to support them. We decided to create a platform that would allow artisans and creators from Panama to sell their products online, and not only locally, but also internationally.
We have found that shopping has become such an automated process in most consumers lives. People tend to stick to a routine and to what they consider to be safe purchases. With an abundance of talent and skilled artisans in Latin America, we want to make sure they are getting the spotlight they deserve. As we continue to grow our platform across Latin America, we are proud to represent not only a curated community of artisans in Panama, but also neighboring countries. We hope to inspire people to become aware of the purchases they make: where their products come from, who makes them, what social and environmental impact they have, etc.
Kindly Shop is not just about the products that lay within it, but about the stories that are attached to them.
