Artists Use Microloans to Become Entrepreneurs

Posted by in Get involved

Nest is a nonprofit organization, founded by Rebecca Kousky, that is dedicated to changing the lives of women in developing countries.

The mission of Nest is to support women artists and artisans in the developing world by helping them create sustainable entrepreneurial businesses. To do this, Nest provides microloans to be used for the purchase of the materials necessary to begin and/or maintain art or craft-based businesses.

The funds for these loans are generated by selling a unique line of clothing, accessories and home merchandise produced by a group of artists and designers.

In addition to these items, Nest loan recipients make their crafts available to Nest as repayment for the micro-credit loans.

In this way, Nest draws artists from across the globe into a cooperative network with a shared vision of mutual support. Through Nest, women are able to plant their roots in a refuge filled with warmth, solace, comfort and joy.
