Andean Region

Countries in the Andean Region have made great progress in reducing poverty in the last decade, yet millions still live below the poverty line. More than 20% of people face systemic challenges in gaining the skills and employment they need to overcome poverty, especially women, indigenous and isolated rural communities. While Peru and Colombia have the highest GDPs in the Andean region, they are also among the most unequal countries in the world.

NESsT’s investments in the Andean Region focus on social enterprises that incorporate innovative business models, technologies and sound environmental practices to bring jobs and greater income earning opportunities to the people who are most in need.
