A loan of $1,300 helped to invest in the purchase of larger amounts of steel and varnish for his sculptures.

Marco's story

Marco is a Peruvian artisan specializing in steel art, including sculptures and home décor. To continue production, Marco would like to invest in the purchase of larger amounts of steel, as well as the varnish he uses to prepare the steel prior to sculpting.

Marco has been selling through NOVICA since 2006. This is his story:

"From the time I was a boy, I was inclined toward design. As a teenager, I studied maintenance mechanics and what I learned there enabled me to work and to depict my own ideas in metal. My specialty is working in cold metal. I try to make the most of materials that others usually discard. Nothing is junk – I can use everything. I like to put aero-spatial details into my work, and I also like to use Inca iconography. I want my work to be different, distinct from what you'd usually find."

"I would like to thank you all for supporting my art through this microcredit. This is a great motivation to continue developing new designs that offer a captivating touch in your home."
