Our Model

The Opportunity Effect

Every time an artisan entrepreneur invests in their families and businesses, they create more economic opportunity.

The Workshop

Development and Growth

SOKO provides detailed support and training to improve and enhance skillsets. After a period of apprenticeship, artisans are encouraged to build their own workshops and workforce

The Goal

Independence and Sovereignty

We max our work at 50% or less of an artisan's total capacity to ensure an artisan has freedom and not sole reliance on SOKO. This encourages long-term, sustainable sovereignty.
