Pedro's story

Pedro (pictured second from right), who works alongside his family, is an artisan from Guatemala who specializes in jade and sterling silver jewelry. He would like to invest in the purchase of raw materials, including fine silver, jade, chains, files and polishing powder.

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

After working for silversmiths for six years, the Guatemalan family decided to open their own workshop. They are all involved in their family business. "We've developed a good working relationship. Everyone specializes in a different aspect and we complement each others' work."

"We are very thankful because these loans have been helping us a great deal. The funds allow us to purchase in bulk at a much better price. Many thanks to everyone who plays a part in making this microcredit possible!"
