What is Nisolo:
Wear Change: Nisolo.
“Beginning with handmade leather shoes in Trujillo, Peru, our vision is to provide impoverished entrepreneurs in communities around the world with access to new markets. Our goal is to partner with consumers to create long-term, sustainable growth by supporting job creation and access to quality education through the sale of our fashionable products.”
“After two years of working in the microfinance sector in impoverished areas of Peru, the Nisolo team became inspired by the vast potential evident in the developing world. Our hope is to now share this talent in a way that will transform communities in need through job creation and access to quality education. Our vision is for you, the consumer, to WEAR CHANGE by partnering with our producers to promote long-term growth and empowerment in these communities and beyond”

I have had the incredible opportunity to be a photographer for Nisolo, capturing the product as well as the process. Check out their facebook page where you can see more pictures and information and see all my pics on this flickr set.
Nisolo is getting ready to make their first export of shoes to the U.S. next week, join us in prayer that everything goes smoothly and their first export is a success.
