Esperanza's story

Esperanza (pictured second from right), who works alongside her family (pictured from left to right: Estuardo, Pedro, Saira and Nilse), has nearly paid off her current loan. She would like to invest in another bulk purchase of sterling silver, jade, and silver chains.

Esperanza has been selling through NOVICA since 2010. After working for silversmiths for six years, Esperanza and her family decided to open their own workshop. They are all involved in their family business. This is her story:

"We've developed a good working relationship. Everyone specializes in a different aspect and we complement each others' work.

"With this microcredit we will be able to prepare ourselves with raw materials to continue producing and generating sales in Novica. You have been a great support in this difficult time for artisans. Thank you all and blessings."
