Alejandro's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support
A loan helped to purchase raw materials, including wood and ceramic bisque.
Alejandro is a Peruvian artisan who specializes in traditional Andean retablos. He would like to purchase raw materials, including wood and ceramic bisque. Alejandro has been selling through NOVICA since 2002. This is his story: "In every one of my works you can also find the labors of my wife, who molds the characters, as well as that of my nieces and nephews, whom I currently teach. The customs and traditions of the Andean people emerge in every retablo. "I'd like to thank everyone who is supporting Peruvian artisans like myself. My goal is to expand the business that I inherited from my parents so that one day my children can continue my work and reach new heights."
