In 2014, in her own laundry room, Nadia created Kallie & Co. - an online social retail business that sells hand crafted goods created by Mexican artisans. Nadia, a Mexican immigrant who married a US Marine, knew she needed a job that was "portable" because they relocated often. She also wanted to find a way to give back to her Mexican community by creating fair labor.
Today, Nadia has grown Kallie & Co. from her laundry room, to a small team of Military Spouses, selling her products across the U.S. and Canada, and supporting 20 artisans in Mexico with fair labor. And that's not all - Kallie & Co. is committed to giving back by donating 100% of profits from t-shirt sales to the Semper Fi Fund and by making donations of shoes to women in need in the United States and Africa. Nadia may have started as a way to have a job on the go, but it's grown in to a sustainable, socially conscious business supporting people across the U.S. and Mexico.
