Alfredo's story

Alfredo specializes in handcrafted silver filigree jewelry. He would like to stock up on materials and purchase two kilograms of fine silver.

Alfredo has been selling through NOVICA since 2005. This is his story:

Alfredo comes from Catacaos in northern Peru. "Catacaos is considered the City of Filigree. I began to learn this art when I was 11 years old, with friends who taught me little by little. I enjoy it because a jeweler's work is a delicate art. I was awarded a scholarship to study with a professor from Israel and was even offered the chance to teach filigree there. But I love Peru too much to leave."

"I'd like to thank you for this microcredit. With it, I'll be able to buy more quality silver and offer new designs to my customers. It will also permit me to give the artisans who collaborate with me the security of steady work. I send you a heartfelt hug and my most cordial gratitude."
