About Nengneithem Hengna
"Dreams of sustainability and self-reliance can only be fulfilled through activities that involve our villages. They are the backbone of our society." says Nengneithem, a handicrafts explorer and entrepreneur from Dimapur, Nagaland. She has been working towards her dream business since 2012. The enterprise aims to build the market for local handicrafts and use traditional techniques to ensure environmental sustainability. Run by women artisans from local communities the business relies on the natural habitat for resources and materials. Nengneithem believes that this can become a channel for sustainable traditions to be passed to the younger generations and create value chains for production and exchange within the community. This can ensure that people can earn from within their villages using their traditional knowledge, while keeping their heritage alive. The organization is now aiming to expand its operations and reach and financial support is needed. The loan amount will go towards construction, procurement of raw materials and training of members. Invest in Nengnei as fulfills her community's dreams.
I wish to build a sustainable ecosystem by empowering artisans and enhancing the local economy.
