Celebrating Young Belizean Entrepreneurs

Celebrating Young Belizean Entrepreneurs!🎉

For the month of February, we are excited to feature Crystal Samos as our Young Belizean Entrepreneur!

Crystal has been beating all odds and making great strides as a young entrepreneur.

A few years ago, Crystal relocated to Cayo where she decided to follow her passion in the hospitality industry. It is during this time that she started her own business “Capio,” selling coffee scrubs on social media. The product can now be found at gift stores, boutique,s and spas countrywide. In 2015, Crystal’s original product won her the titles of the “2015 Female Entrepreneur of the Caribbean” and “Most Innovative Product” at the Sustainable Development Entrepreneurship Conference in Grenada. That same year, Crystal was also awarded the “Innovation” Award by the Youth Department and the “20,000 Strong Woman” Award.

Crystal is also a strong advocate against gender-based violence. As one of the directors, she single-handedly organized and directed the Rising Entrepreneurs Gala. Crystal also carries out humanitarian work across Belize through a newly formed ARMO team, proving that her goals have no limit. On top of all everything else, Crystal is a fully certified Guest Service Professional and a Certified Hotel Administrator.

In addition to having a full time job, Crystal currently manages Cataleya’s Guesthouse, named after her young daughter and located in Vista Del Mar. Her life quote “Let go, and let God” keeps her moving forward in life.
