A loan of $2,200 helped to purchase wool and cotton yarn for his tapestries and rugs.

Zosimo's story

Zosimo weaves tapestries and rugs on a traditional Andean handloom. He would like to stock up on the wool and cotton yarns that he uses in his weavings.

Zosimo has been selling through NOVICA since 2002. This is his story:

Zosimo comes from a family of weavers in Ayacucho, renowned for its handicrafts. Like his grandparents and brothers, he works on a traditional handloom. Forced to abandon Ayacucho due to turmoil and violence, Zosimo and his family moved to an urban center where they faced innumerable obstacles. Nonetheless, his dedication has allowed him to succeed. His goal is to teach his children the textile art once they are old enough.

"I want to thank you for your much needed help. Sometimes, for a variety of reasons, I am unable to have a supply of all my designs available. But with your assistance, I will be able to keep a permanent stock of my designs and be able to have good sales at the end of this year."
