A loan of $3,500 helped to purchase silver in bulk and expand production of his jewelry.

Francisco's story

Francisco specializes in handcrafted sterling silver jewelry. He would like to invest in a bulk purchase of silver to expand production.

Francisco has been selling through NOVICA since 2004. This is his story:

"I am the second generation of jewelers in my family, and now my daughters have also chosen this vocation. My designs are inspired by pre-Hispanic codices and the folklore of my country that I love so much. I sign my work as 'Citlali', meaning 'Star' in the Nahuatl language, so everyone wearing my designs has a star to keep them company."

"I feel honored to be considered a recipient of this interest-free microcredit. I am confident it will help us grow as we face some challenges at the moment that are affecting production."
