Diva & Latha Divakaran – Emerald
Duraisingam (Diva) and Swarnalatha (Latha) Divakaran emigrated from Sri Lanka to give their family greater opportunities. “We’re certainly not going to let any of them pass us by,” says Diva. That open-to-all-possibilities attitude led them quite naturally to Amway.
They were living in a new country; Diva worked two jobs; and Latha was committed to staying home with their two young sons, Kapil and Dilip, now 16 and 15.
“Expenses were greater than we’d expected,” says Latha. “So when Diva was invited to see the AMWAY™ business opportunity, he went with his mind wide open.” And he returned home with a new future.
Diva, whose career as a controller had given him an inside look at the financial structure of many corporations, says he “recognized right away that this was the best business opportunity around.”
“And when we tried the products, the quality was obvious,” says Latha. Both agreed that getting that quality into people’s hands would be the key to success.
“We enjoy sharing NUTRILITE® vitamins, minerals, and supplements, and offer samples so people can try the products we love,” says Diva. “And, we also encourage people try out ATOMOSPHERE® Air Purifiers and eSpring® Water Purifiers. Many people are looking for ways to make their office and home environments healthier, and we offer them efficient ways to do that. We provide opportunities they can’t turn down.”
The average monthly gross income earned by “active” IBOs was $115 (U.S.)/$181 (CAN.).
The percentage of IBOs who achieved Double Diamond and above qualification in FY08 was .0038%.
Based on an independent survey during 2001, approximately 66% of all IBOs of record were found to be active. “Active” means an IBO attempted to make a retail sale, or presented the Amway Independent Business Owner Compensation Plan, or received bonus money, or attended a company or IBO meeting in the year 2000.
“Gross Income” means the amount received from retail sales, minus the cost of goods sold, plus the amount of Performance Bonus retained. There may be significant business expenses, mostly discretionary, that may be greater in relation to income in the first years of operation. The success depicted may reflect income and investments outside the IBO Plan.
