A loan of $2,300 helped to purchase larger amounts of alpaca and wool to continue production.

Faustino's story

Faustino and his family specialize in alpaca and wool weaves, from throws and tapestries to cushion covers and handbags. He would like to invest in the purchase of larger amounts of alpaca and wool to continue production.

Faustino has been selling through NOVICA since 2000. This is his story:

"My parents and grandparents were artisans. So I learned at an early age to weave on rustic looms, to prepare the warp and spin the wool. Our family motto has been: I will never let go of either my grandfather or grandson's hands, for what I have learned from the elders, I will teach to the young. Based on this family philosophy, our work today represents the art that has been passed down from generation to generation within my family."

"We would like to thank you very much for your support. With this microcredit we'll be able to stock up on alpaca, which is essential for our work. We believe you must be very special people indeed for supporting us this way - we'll always keep you in our hearts."
