Emilio's story

Emilio is an artisan from Peru who specializes in mate gourd ornaments and décor. He would like to invest in a bulk purchase of raw materials, including dried gourds.

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

"I was born in Huancayo, Peru. This art is in my blood. It's something that is born from generation to generation, carried by a magical world toward natural materials. Through my own initiative and desire to learn, my eyes saw and my hands created. This is how I began in this wonderful world, trying to create and create.

"I am very happy and grateful for this microcredit. With these funds, I will be able to buy more materials and develop some new products to meet demand."
