Francisco's story

Francisco is an artisan from Mexico who specializes in sterling silver jewelry. For this loan, he would like to invest in a bulk purchase of silver.

Francisco has been selling through NOVICA since 2004. This is his story:

Francisco says, "I am the second generation of jewelers, and now my daughters have also chosen this vocation. My designs are inspired by pre-Hispanic codices and the folklore of my country that I love so much, using different motifs from our own culture. I sign my work as Citlali, meaning Star in the Nahuatl language, so everyone wearing my designs has a star to keep them company.

"Thank you very much for the opportunity to participate in this artisan microcredit program. We have grown together and feel very happy about our progress."
