A loan helped to invest in a bulk purchase of wool yarn, dyes, and firewood.


Gregorio's story

Gregorio is an artisan from Mexico who specializes in Zapotec wool rugs. He would like to invest in a bulk purchase of wool yarn, dyes, and firewood. Gregorio has been selling through NOVICA since 2004. This is his story:

"My grandmother would take me to buy wool. She'd wash it, card it, spin it and dye the yarn. Women have always done this job. By the age of 12, I could reach the pedals of the handloom. Ever since, I've been making rugs and now my sons have also learned our craft."

"I wish everyone good health. Today more than ever we appreciate the trust and support that you give us. With your help, we will be able to continue creating and supporting other families."
