Challenge

Through our Sprout Enterprise initiative, we are building a network of artisans, designers and entrepreneurs creating sustainable livelihoods for rural communities with few economic alternatives to subsistence farming. Our goal is to enable rural artisans and farmers to earn much more than the bare minimum - and to develop the economic basis to live in dignity, free from hunger and extreme poverty.

Solution

We provide business mentoring to entrepreneurs building social enterprises and market representation for 25+ artisan enterprises to US retailers and consumers via www.SproutEnterprise.net. Our artisan partners draw on the rich cultural heritage of their communities and use indigenous skills and materials to craft their artisan collections. We connect these artisan enterprises to new markets and provide the support needed to ensure these enterprises are successful and sustainable.

Long-Term Impact

We believe that: 1) locally owned and operated enterprises are the primary drivers to community and economic development; 2) rural development and support of sustainable agriculture and artisan enterprises are critical to economic growth in emerging markets; 3) grass-roots, community-based initiatives are core to resilient, vibrant local economies. Therefore, we work with local entrepreneurs who have the vision and leadership to build enterprises, and believe in local talent and capabilities.
