Nestor's story

Nestor is an artisan from Peru who specializes in alpaca apparel and throws. He would like to invest in a purchase of new sewing machines for his workshop.

Nestor has been selling through NOVICA since 2002. This is his story:

Nestor hails from Peru's Puno region, renowned for quality alpaca and sheep wool. When he first began to weave, he worked on the rustic looms he built along with other family members. They sold their wares at local markets until they were able to acquire modern machinery, which in turn allowed them to develop newer designs.

"Special thanks to everyone who supports this microcredit program. It helps artisans like myself to invest in our business and create new designs."
