but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to stock up on alpaca wool in a variety of colors ahead of the busy season.

Isidoro's story

Isidoro specializes in alpaca apparel and accessories. He would like to create a stock of alpaca wool in the most popular colors. Isidoro has been selling through NOVICA since 2006. This is his story: Peruvian artisan Isidoro was forced to migrate in the 1970s when terrorist activities swept through his home region. "I found a job as a janitor in a textile factory. I was completely fascinated!" he says. "At night, when everyone had gone, I began to experiment with the looms. One night, the manager caught me and said I should start by learning how to assemble a loom. That was the beginning of a vocation, a great gift that I have now passed on to my children." "Today I have a wide range of designs and I want to create even more. I was so pleased to hear about this interest-free microcredit program, as this will allow me to be prepared for the upcoming high season. I plan to stock up on alpaca wool in a variety of colors. My family and I thank you." Use the link below to view Isidoro's alpaca apparel and accessories on the NOVICA site: http://www.novica.com/artistdetail/index.cfm?faid=5709
