Donation: Set of Design Samples
The Incubator Fund
Incubator Fund covers start-up costs incurred by Indego Africa in
building successful market access partnerships with new artisan groups.
Set of Design Samples
The first stage in working with a new cooperative is to explore the compatibility of artisan producers' skills with Indego Africa’s designs. Indego Africa imagines the designs for new products, then works with artisan producers to create samples. In addition to supplying raw materials, Indego Africa pays the cooperative a fair wage for producing samples.
