Craft Link Africa operates as a fair trade market organization. It is establishing social enterprise centres of excellence across Africa, with an initial centre in Nairobi, operating as Craft Link Kenya. We provide production, marketing and financial training and services to small scale producers, today referred to as micro social entrepreneurs (MSEs), of fair trade hand made products and agriculture produce, to gain access to local and international markets.The enterprise also provides an enabling environment for women and youth to use sustainablly sourced organic raw materials in their production. As a linking organization within the Kenya Federation of Alternatvie Trade, (KEFAT) which has over 150,000 members, Craft Link Kenya is also aboe to provide micro distrbution services to companies looking sell products to MSEs In addition Craft Link works with designers and retailers across the world seeking to work with a well managed work force of artisans in the production of quality controlled product lines that the designer/retailer seeks to sell through their own chains of distribution . Craft Link plays a dual role of poverty alleviation and environmental conservation and currently supports over 4000 artisans across Kenya, with plans to expand these numbers across the country and into other nations. Craft Link is also supported by the independantly operated ARTISAN LINK Investment program, aimed at facilitating the end of all malnutrition in Africa by 2015. This is accomplished by nations exporting surplus agricultural produce to neighbouring countries as well as trade exports to your high street, as has been successfully shown in Malawi within only 4 years. You can be involved today in the Artisan Link programs with Craft Link through joint venture product development, infrastructure investment or simply as a micro investor. Every new link in turn grows the overall output capacity of Craft Link's producer co-operatives. The MAKE A LINK micro loan program in Kenya is administered in association with Akasha Investments, a division of Akasha Ltd, registed in England and Wales and Equity Bank, Kenya's most significant bank for Africans.
