Esperanza's story

Esperanza (pictured second from left), who works alongside her family (pictured from left to right: Nilse, Saira, Pedro and Estuardo) is an artisan from Guatemala who specializes in hand-crafted jade and sterling silver jewelry. She would like to invest in a bulk purchase of silver and jade.





Esperanza has been selling through NOVICA since 2010. This is her story:





After working for silversmiths for six years, Guatemala's Esperanza decided to open a workshop with her family. They are all involved in their family business. 'We've developed a good working relationship. Everyone specializes in a different aspect and we complement each others' work.'





"Our family is very grateful to all of you. Your support allows us to continue growing our business."
