Pedro's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to purchase jade and pure silver in bulk.
Pedro is an artisan from Guatemala who specializes in silver and gemstone jewelry. He would like to make a bulk purchase of jade and pure silver for his work. He has been selling through Novica since 2011. This is his story: "When I was 20, I began working in a silver workshop and my passion for making handcrafted jewelry was born. I specialized in engraving silver and have had my own workshop since 1980; it's a simple place, but I have all the tools and space I need to work. I am very grateful for this wonderful opportunity you are giving me and my artisan community in Guatemala. "I am very thankful for your support through this microcredit, as it will allow me to purchase the materials I need to continue crafting my jewelry. This is especially important this time of year, with the holiday rush about to take place. Gracias!"
