Zandra's story

Zandra is an artisan from Guatemala who specializes in jade jewelry. She would like to make a bulk purchase of silver and jade.

Zandra has been selling through NOVICA since 2011. This is her story:

"The first thing I ever made on my own was a pair of silver earrings. My husband taught me so I could help him. I remember watching him work on his own 'til all hours of the night and I really wanted to learn how to craft jewelry. Finally the day came when he asked me to help him and that's how I started. I felt happy as I saw the jewelry I had crafted and how beautiful it was."

"I appreciate your financial support through this microcredit, as it allows me to acquire the materials I need to continue crafting pieces and providing for my family. Muchas gracias!"
