Kelvin's story

Kelvin is an artisan from Peru who specializes in wood and leather boxes and organizers. He would like to invest in materials, including wood, leather, sealant, and hardware.

Kelvin has been selling through NOVICA since 2014. This is his story:

"I was born in Lima in 1989. I'm immensely grateful to my parents for all their support and the advice they gave me as I was growing up. I began learning the art of woodcarving and tooled leather at an early age by watching my father at the place where he worked. I thank God I was able to get ahead with a lot of effort, hard work, and humility. We work with leather, different kinds of wood, and the metal accessories that go with each design. I enjoy developing new designs.

"With this loan, I will acquire the materials I need to craft new items. Gracias!"
