Mauricio's story

Mauricio is an artisan from Guatemala who specializes in handcrafted and painted ceramic bird sculptures. He would like to purchase medications and supplies for his basic needs.

Mauricio has been selling through NOVICA since 2017. This is his story:

Mauricio was born in the beautiful city of Antigua, Guatemala. "This has been a very difficult time for me and my family. Our main source of income has been totally annulled by the global pandemic. This money will be very useful for us to overcome two difficult points that we are experiencing at the moment: my daughter has become ill and we need to buy medicine, and also pay for the basic needs of the house. Thank you very much and blessings."
