Nest is a nonprofit organization that provides micro credit loans to female artisans in developing countries to support them in establishing their own craft-based businesses.
Funding for the loans is generated by The Nest Line, which includes clothing, jewelry and housewares made by well-known designers.
As a repayment for the loan, recipients give their works to be included in The Nest Line’s exclusive merchandise.
Products can be found in many stores around the U.S. and also at their online shop.
Items made by the women of Nest’s loan support are beautiful and unique--each with its own cultural style. Countries represented include Guatemala, India, Israel, Mexico, Morocco, Tanzania, and Turkey.
After splurging on Nest products, you can leave guilt-free, because you have participated in Nest’s dedication to bettering the lives of women worldwide.
