    Soko uses smartphones and a supply chain innovation tool to connects artisans in developing nations to department stores, boutiques, and other retailers. This tool is significantly cheaper than the cost of traditional production, which yields higher earnings to the artisans. In working with these artisans, Soko is empowering them to continue with their craft, hone their skills, and to make a livable wage.
