Improving the Livelihood of Producers in Latin America

Commitment by

Non-Profit Enterprise And Self-Sustainability Team (Nesst)

In 2010, NESsT committed to incubating and scaling social enterprises in Latin America to improve the livelihood of artisans, small-scale farmers, service providers, and fishing communities by enabling them to earn a sustainable income. In the first three years, NESsT will choose 25 social enterprises that have demonstrated potential to significantly increase local producers' income. These social enterprises will be provided management, technology, financial, and other enterprise planning and development support to increase their entrepreneurial capacity and market access. In years four and five, NESsT will systematically replicate innovative, successful models in order to reach an even larger number of producers and create even greater impact across the region.
