Patrick Woodyard founded Nisolo Shoes in 2011 to help small-scale shoemakers in Northern Peru sell their products to a larger market. Nisolo’s goal is to create jobs by giving impoverished producers the ability to empower themselves to shape their own future. The company also donates 10 percent of its profits to education programs in the neighborhoods where its products are made. Learn more about Nisolo Shoes at
