Mission Statement
Nest is a nonprofit organization that empowers female artists and artisans around the world. Using a unique combination of interest-free microfinance loans, mentoring from established designers, as well as a market in which to sell their crafts, Nest helps its loan recipients create successful small businesses. Nest instills pride of ownership, preserves ancient artistic traditions and successfully moves women from poverty to self-sufficiency.

When women are given the opportunity to earn a living wage, families and children are supported. By supporting Nest, you will play an active role in creating sustainable employment and changing entire communities.

Work with Women
NEST™s unique microbartering approach and commitment to ethical sourcing allow us to act as a collaborators with women artisans rather than simply consumers or importers.
