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


A loan helped to purchase a motorcycle, in order to have an efficient means by which to transport the raw materials he needs and deliver the finished products he has crafted.


Byron's story

Byron is an artisan from Guatemala who specializes in wrought iron sculptures and home decor. He would like to purchase a motorcycle, in order to have an efficient means by which to transport the raw materials he needs and deliver the finished products he has crafted.

Byron has been selling through NOVICA since 2010. This is his story:

"I work in wrought iron. All my designs are completely original and crafted by hand. The wrought iron is created with fire and a forge. I never liked school much. All my life, what I've been passionate about is my work, my art. I have two daughters who are the light of my life. Someday when they're grown up and have their own families, I'd like to teach my art to my grandsons.

"I really need this microcredit in order to improve my business. Right now we have to transport raw materials and deliver products either by foot or in a pickup truck, both of which are very inefficient. I thank you for this opportunity and I am hopeful that this will benefit my business in the long run."
