Ana Maria's story

Ana Maria is an artisan from Mexico who specialises in découpage home decor. She would like to invest in a bulk purchase of raw materials, including wood and paint, as well as bring on additional artisans at her workshop. Ana Maria has been selling through Novica since 2004. This is her story:

'For as long as I can remember,' says Ana Maria, 'I've been around arts and crafts. My whole family produced something and when we'd visit our relatives, my cousins and I would make something for fun.

'After I married, my husband and I created various kinds of handicrafts, but I felt a need to make something. I began making decorative boxes, painted by hand with different finishes. Today, I create boxes with antique motifs.

'Our handicrafts show our love for our culture, traditions and history, and your support through this microcredit helps us to grow and share that which we love so much.'
