"Super Soft"

Soft and colorful, on the thin side (which is fine for temps above freezing). I smidge tight, would be fine if I didnt wear a wedding ring (the prongs catch on the yarns, so Im very careful when putting them on). Super cute though!

Moving On Up

Moving On Up

Nestor is not only an employer, he is an important member of his community. He continues to grow his business providing full-time employment to 23 workers and part-time employment to others when he can. He recognizes his good fortune and shares with those less fortunate whenever the opportunity arises. The income from Nestor's Novica sales not only supports his wife, son and elderly parents — it helps to support others in his community. Many of Nestor's employees were homeless. Nestor not only provides them with work, he provides a place to stay or live.

Working with Disabilities

Nestor Yana has received 8 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $2850 and the most recent for $2850. Proceeds were used to buy yarn in the colors of this season's fashion trends for production.
