Angel's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support
A loan helped to purchase bronze and copper in bulk, as well as metal-working equipment for his workshop.
Angel is an artisan who specializes in bronze and copper art. He would like to purchase bronze and copper in bulk, as well as metal-working equipment for his workshop. Angel has been selling through NOVICA since 2010. This is his story: "This art means a lot in my life; it is how I support my family and it is also my passion. It is a way of capturing all my efforts and dedication toward my family. What motivates me is that I want to learn more about my ancestors and our cultural legacy. What I want to transmit is everything that ancient Peruvian cultures left for the world. I want everyone to know these great artisans and their creations." "I'd like to thank everyone who has contributed to this microcredit, as it will help me grow my business. Some of my metal-working equipment is no longer working well, so it will be very helpful to be able to replace it."
