Fernando's story

Fernando, shown here with his wife, Gladys, is a weaver from Peru who specializes in alpaca apparel. He would like to invest in a bulk purchase of alpaca wool yarn.

Fernando has been selling through NOVICA since 2011. This is his story:

"My artistic origins come from my family. My uncles worked in textiles and little by little they introduced me to this world," recalls Fernando. "I love being able to translate materials into beautiful designs. My work means everything to me: it's what I love and cherish, and I love the fact that I can provide for my family thanks to it."

"Thank you very much for your kind support. This loan will allow me to buy good-quality yarn and ensure that I can keep up with demand for my products."
