Nesti is derived from the Farsi word, "nest" which explains the lack of existence.

I would say common origins, because in most Pashto dialects it is 'Nishta->Neyshti' and 'Nista->Neysti' in the rest...
Hence, I would like to conclude that much of Parsi and Pashto vocabulary/grammar has common origins, and they're not derived from each other!!

And a poor person is "nistman." I had actually forgotten about that one since we usually use "ghareeb," and generally use "nistman" figuratively in an insulting way, so thanks for the reminder.
In Arabic a poor person is known as a "miskeen".

"faqeer" too, but that word has taken on an entirely new meaning outside of Arabic.

I'm not sure if these phrases mean "scattered". But they mean something similar.
