Jose Antonio's story

Jose Antonio is an artisan from Peru who specializes in leather and wood furniture. He has been selling through Novica since 2000.

He and his family have created carved wooden furniture with tooled leather for several generations.

"My family and I proudly follow the traditions, incorporating contemporary teachings and designs to face new challenges. Our creations are totally handmade with love and quality."

Jose Antonio has applied for a loan through Kiva's field partner Novica to invest in a bulk purchase of wood and leather: "I will use this loan to acquire materials such as wood, leather, dyes and lacquer. I am planning to create a new collection with modern designs and colors. Thanks to all of you who give us a helping hand and allow us to move our business forward."
