A loan of $400 helped to purchase cotton and alpaca wool in bulk for his weaving business.

David's story

David specializes in weaving wool rugs and tapestries. To expand production, he would like to invest in a bulk purchase of cotton and alpaca wool. David has been selling through NOVICA since 2000.

This is his story:

David's grandparents and parents were weavers who inherited this art from their predecessors. "I essentially learned through observation. Nevertheless, I have taken several textile courses. My work focuses on resuscitating our ancestral culture and linking it to the present. I work with my family, and our materials include wool, cotton, and both natural and artificial dyes. For the natural dyes, we cultivate the plants ourselves, including walnut, tare, molle and alder. Everything we do, we do with love and a high regard for quality and professionalism. We work very hard to weave the best possible finished product. I would like to thank you very much for this microcredit. I am certain that it will help our business immensely."
