The company had very humble beginnings in the Philippines. Today the QI Group has regional offices in Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore and Hong Kong. They also have a sales team that operates in dozens of countries throughout Asia.

Many of these independent sales representatives are now prosperous businesspeople that have created employment opportunities and improved the quality of life for countless people in their communities.
Vijay Eswaran has also done extremely well. He is now one of Asia’s richest men. But is also much beloved because he is a very generous philanthropist.
