We had the good fortune of connecting with Kimberly Henriquez and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Kimberly, is your business focused on helping the community? If so, how?
We bring education to the world on how to properly use our products to their full potential. Most people don’t know there is more than just mainstream spiritual products on TV and online. We are a cultural hub for many small businesses around the world. We have been giving opportunities to indigenous South Americans and Native American women.
What should our readers know about your business?
At Obra of Love, we believe in sustainable growth, the extraordinary elements of the plants we use, and our community supportive business practices. Our mission is to inform others and gain support for true fair-trade. We want equal selling rights for our organic farmers, educators, and business owners that create remedies solely to benefit people from all walks of life. Obra of Love has been created through believing and having faith in the unknown. Trusting in something even if it seems it won’t succeed.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I have taken many family members and friends to the most beautiful places in Houston. The first place we visit is Canino’s Farmers Market! They have plenty of interesting finds and delightful people. Secondly, we head to the Asian districts like Chinatown and Koreatown. There are so many places to eat delicious food there. Our third spot would be Discovery Green. There is always an event being hosted in the park, if not the walk is peaceful and beautiful.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
My indigenous Costa Rican family. My Grandmother, Aunts, and other women that helped raise me gave me the strength I have today. They lived very difficult lives but, it did not stop them from achieving what they believed in. I carry the weight of their actions on my shoulders. I have and want to fulfill my duties as a strong Costa Rican woman. My children and husband support and drive me to do what I believe in. They are my inspiration for Obra of Love. My daughters make products and work on social media for the company, while my son helps with labor and ideas. They all have their hard work and creativity in this business. This business is a part of our family.
