Fernando's story

Fernando, shown here with his wife, Gladys, is an artisan from Peru who specializes in alpaca apparel. He would like to invest in building a new workshop for his business.

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."

"Currently my workshop is located in a rented house in a high-risk area for strong seismic movement. I have obtained a piece of land a few blocks from it to be able to install my own workshop, and I have invested my savings to buy it, but I need support to be able to start the construction. That's why I come to you. It goes without saying that I will be very grateful for your support, as it will help me to fulfill one of my greatest dreams."
