A loan of $700 helped to purchase yarn in bulk for use in the knitting of alpaca accessories.

Alicia's story

Alicia is a co-founder of the Manuela Ramos Movement, a feminist organization whose goal is to attain conditions of equality amongst women and men, as well as a plural and democratic society where human rights and social justice prevail. She would like to invest in quality yarns for the group's alpaca wool and alpaca blend fashion accessories.

Alicia has been working with NOVICA since 2008. This is the story of the group she helped found:

The Manuela Ramos Movement came to life in Peru in 1978. The group contributes to the development and strengthening of women's skills and abilities with a view to promoting and exercising their civil and human rights. The group uses ancestral techniques in the creation of a broad range of hand-knitted and crocheted alpaca accessories.

Says Alicia, "Many thanks for funding this microcredit. We'd like to create a new collection of designs that you'll feel proud to wear, and we want to feel satisfied with the results. May God bless you!"
