hello dear, thanks for every thing! you are welcome!
We would like to take this opportunity to describe our work with the rural/slam mothers in Bangladesh as below: are women lead and a collective effort in the form of Self-Help Group and with the sense of Cooperative initiative. The members are mostly rural mothers and/or migrated from rural areas to urban slum. Its rights base and upholding the Children Rights to advocate to the duty bearers and caregivers, example success and creating the route of battling the hunger and all discrimination to the children and the women;
We believe, empowering the mothers is the key way to save the children from all discrimination. Making and increasing involvement of the mothers in manufacturing ethical products and ensuring the ownership of the producers(as called worker in the industry) by sharing the decision, capital, labour (physical) and profit;
Handmade, low cost, recycle/up cycle, organic and/or harmful chemical free, and child labour free are our key issues to describe the branding;
Projotno Bangladesh is the development forum of women cooperative initiative by the rural and urban slum dwellers. The products are made by the rural women producers, the mothers of the children of primary schools from poor families
We develop their life and trade skills and provide supports to produce diversified products by using their indigenous knowledge and obtained skills, we promote it’s, the producers earn from it and pay for the food, nutrition health and education for their children. The theme what we believe and follow, is fashion for human development.
There is a huge opportunity to make involved the rural women in the fashion industries through developing their indigenous knowledge and life skill. They develop their skills here and learn to produce diversified handmade echo-friendly products.

You are most welcome to visit our project and join in this combat against hunger to protect our children from being deprived. As we are thinking to have a expansion across the border and start working for the similar target people (the mothers and the children) in every where by using our expertise.

Appreciated if we can be granted the permission to visit your office and hear and share your opinion with us.

nogaya looking for sales agents and distributors in japan

1- Agents
The agents are the Nogaya sales representatives for agreed territories. Their role is to sell the Nogaya items to deco shops, high street shops, retail chains, etc ... They do report to us regularly on their work. They place the orders with us by email.
• There is a minimum of USD 1,500 per order.
• They make 15% commission on the sale turnover they generate. For instance, the agent sells for USD 1,000, he/she makes USD 150.
• We expect an agent to generate a turnover of at least USD 10,000 a month.
• The commission is paid by money transfer once the customers have fully paid (100%) Nogaya.
• As a fair trade business, and as a partnership goodwill, we expect our agents to buy the samples at wholesale price.
The agents will have to manage the relationships with Nogaya retail customers on behalf of Nogaya. As such, they need to be able to explain the Nogaya marketing stance, especially in terms of lead time to manufacture the women artisans' items. The lead time can go up to 4 months for some items. They also need to talk about our payment terms. As a fair trade business, Nogaya pays its women artisan groups when the order is placed. Hence Nogaya expects its customers to pay a minimum of 50% of the order value at the order, the balance upon delivery.

In order to simplify delivery and to manage import regulations efficiently, Nogaya will sell its products FOB India or Israel. The transport will be arranged by Nogaya and charge at cost. All import duties, VAT and any other local taxes in the import country will be handle by the final customers.

2- Distributors
The distributors are the Nogaya selling arms and representative of Nogaya in agreed territories. They market the Nogaya products to their own network of customers. They organize marketing campaigns and promotions in order to push the sales. They use local advertizing when deemed necessary. They report regularly on sales progress.
• They buy Nogaya products at 70% discount on public selling price and resell to their customers at the public selling price. Based on their knowledge of the local market, they could sell at a higher public selling price and share the difference with Nogaya who in turn could share the extra profits with the women artisans groups in the form of extra training or supports.
• Nogaya expects its distributors to generate a minimum of USD 20,000 a month.
• As a fair trade business, Nogaya requests its distributors to pay 50% of order value at the order, balance upon delivery.
• The minimum order size is USD 5,000.
In order to simplify delivery and to manage import regulations efficiently, Nogaya will sell its products FOB India or Israel. The transport will be arranged by Nogaya and charge at cost. All import duties, VAT and any other local taxes in the import country will be handle by the final customers.
