A loan helped to invest in a bulk purchase of alpaca wool.


Raquel's story

Raquel, who works alongside her husband Gregor, is an artisan who specializes in alpaca accessories. She would like to invest in a bulk purchase of alpaca wool.

Raquel has been selling through NOVICA since 2006. This is her story:

Raquel and husband Gregor are dedicated to preserving Peruvian textile traditions. "What draws us to weaving is the opportunity to work with natural fibers by rescuing ancient Inca weaving techniques. We love to see the transformation of loose yarns into garments and accessories. We help an Andean community by employing weavers on traditional looms who then help us finish each piece by hand."

"I'd like to thank everyone who has played a role in providing us with this opportunity. My goal for this microcredit is to invest in the raw material we need to weave more pieces and build up our inventory."
