Nest

Many of my travels are with the wonderful organization I volunteer with.  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.

With loan recipients in Guatemala, Morocco, Kenya, and most recently, New York, Nest instills pride of ownership, preserves ancient artistic traditions and successfully moves women from poverty to self-sufficiency.
