Patricia's story

Patricia is an artisan from Peru who specializes in silver and gemstone jewelry. She would like to invest in a bulk purchase of silver and gemstones. Patricia has been selling through NOVICA since 2001. This is her story:

Peru's Patricia works with a number of crafts in regions throughout Peru. "My art is a personal search. I find nourishment in the art of our ancestors, the experience of master artisans, and the influence of foreign designers. Crafts are my life's passion," she says.

"Last year brought many challenges in my personal life, so for this year I really want to focus on creating new pieces and building up my sales. This loan will really help me reach that goal."
