A loan helped to invest in a bulk purchase of silver.

Francisco's story

Francisco is an artisan from Mexico specializing in sterling silver jewelry. He'd like to invest in a bulk purchase of silver and gemstones.

He's been selling through NOVICA since 2004. Francisco says, "I'm the second generation of jewelers and now my daughters have chosen this vocation. My designs are inspired by pre-Hispanic codices and the folklore of my country I love so much, using different motifs from our own culture. I sign my work as Citlali, meaning 'star' in the Nahuatl language, so everyone wearing my designs has a star to keep them company."

"It's a privilege to belong to the NOVICA family and have access to this microcredit program. Thank you for caring for artisans and helping them move forward."
