A loan of $400 helped to purchase raw materials and components for her leather handbags.

Gisella's story

Gisella designs and crafts leather handbags. She would like to buy raw materials and components to be able to create new designs.

Gisella has been selling through NOVICA since 2011. This is her story:

"I've always had an inclination towards creating things, and I like handicrafts. Several years ago, I began making soaps and candles, and I enrolled in craft classes every chance I had. In 2009, I decided to study jewelry crafting. Later, I studied designing purses and wallets. My greatest challenge has been getting ahead as a woman in a field that has been mostly dominated by men."

"When I design my handbags, I want women to fall in love with them and use them all the time. Thank you so much for your support. I appreciate your confidence and want to thank you all for helping me achieve my dream."
