Adriana started working for UNICEF in 2014 and moved to Dakar. This work has taken her everywhere, between Latin America, Asia, and now, Senegal. Her travels, her professional career, and especially the years spent in Senegal, made her realize towards the end of 2016 that she wanted to create something different, having the potential to create jobs, and to have an impact on the lives of others . She creates KEARA.
"KEARA represents a bit who I am , since it allows me to bring a little bit of the colors and traditions of my country, Bolivia, to the country that has welcomed me since 2013."
As Adriana is now based in Panama, she is exploring expanding KEARA’s production beyond West Africa and working with artisans from Latin America this time.
